Quick Overview

Haunting aromas of red fruits and spice precede nuances of smoke. Bright red and black fruit flavors intertwined with light gamey notes leap from the glass. This is a full-flavored, but not over-the-top, impeccably balanced wine supported by fine tannins and uplifting acidity. It's so lovely now that it's hard to resist, it will develop magnificently.
Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Details

La Nerthe's 225-acre property has been owned by the Richard family since 1985, but is directed by Alain Dugas, who came to winemaking rather implausibly from accounting. Dugas is an engaging, enthusiastic man who looks a little like Harry Truman, and who has the same down-to-earth sensibility. Dugas restored the entire neglected property--vineyards, winery and chateau. When Dugas arrived, he even found a World War II bunker in front of the chateau, a reminder that the Germans had used the site as a telecommunications center. His wines show the attention to detail he must have exercised in his former profession. Showing good sense, Richard views La Nerthe as an investment, and leaves the winemaking to Dugas. (And an excellent investment it is: Dugas estimated the purchase price in 1985 was about $2 million dollars, and suspects it is worth 20 times that now.)
