Reviews for 2011 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

92 Points  The Wine Advocate
“A similar blend (slightly more Grenache Blanc), the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc shows a touch more citrus and green herbs, with additional minerality that is most likely due more to the additional year in bottle than anything else. Slightly leaner and straighter than the 2012, it too is a beautiful wine that stays beautifully focused, with impressive acidity and an overall classy feel. Drink it over the coming year or two.”

“This rolls over the tongue with the smoothness of a galet, leaving a warm, sunny impression behind. It’s opulent and oaky, as creamy as rice pudding, with a salty minerality that turns it savory and mouthwatering.”

90 Points  Wine Spectator
“This is high-pitched, with talc, green almond, plantain, chamomile and green plum notes that move along briskly, ending in a pure, stony finish.”

 

Reviews for 2012 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

 

92 Points  Wine Spectator
“Juicy and energetic, with star fruit, melon rind, chamomile and white peach notes racing along, backed by fine minerality on the finish. Should open up with some cellaring. Drink now through 2016.”

92 Points The Wine Advocate
“Starting with the whites, and always one of the top releases in any vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a blend of 38% Roussanne, 28% Grenache Blanc, 20% Clairette and the balance Bourboulenc that’s aged close to 70% in tank (on lees) and 30% in 2-3 year old barrels. Gorgeous all around, with notions of white currants, buttered citrus and tinges of honey and flowers, it is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and supple, yet never loses focus or purity and has vibrant acidity. While superb now (and as always, I recommend drinking the whites within a couple years of the vintage), this cuvee can certainly age and evolve gracefully. ”

 

Reviews for 2013 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

92 Points  Wine & Spirits
“This is youthful and undeveloped, the focus on rich and toasty scents and broad, creamy texture. What makes it compelling is the sleekness of its structure and the clarity of its white fruit flavors. It feel fresh and lively, already classy, poised to take on more detail with another five to ten years in the cellar.”

Reviews for 2014 Chateau La Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

93 Points  Wine & Spirits
“If you could squeeze juice from one of the galets that pave the 225 acres of vines surrounding La Nerthe, it might taste like this: dense and salty, with hints of the grasses and wildflowers that pop up here and there. It’s not about fruit, though the sunny characters of the acidity brings lemon to mind; it is, however, pretty and firm, a wine that could age, or take on monkfish in brown butter right now.”
90 Points Wine Spectator
“Sports a racy feel, with fennel, star fruit and lemon zest hints guiding the core of white peach and honeysuckle. Stays bracing and stony through the finish.”
