New Year's Blogging Part V - Chateau La Nerthe 2000

At the end, finishing with a Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Chateau la Nerthe. Here is what Wine Spectator has to say:

Big wine, but so refined and sleek, it comes across as delicate on the palate. Plenty of finely tuned oak, with vanilla, chocolate and mocha aromas that blend into the sweet red and blackberry to produce a classy and satiny wine that is surprisingly aristocratic for this appellation. Like a charming red Burgundy from Chambolle-Musigny. Drink now through 2010. 17,165 cases made. –PM

92 points.
