It’s balanced with a full body. Bright texture with a long finish – Uncorked 2 hrs before serving. On opening tobacco (cigars) earth and leather. After one hour begins to open up and to reveal a nicely fruity nose, but it is still quite unbalanced at palate. After two hours the nose has fully evolved to fruity – blueberry confiture, black currant, cherry under spirit, plum- with hints of dried flowers and spices- black pepper, coffee, liquorice- tobacco and leather being still recognisable. The colour is still quite intense and lively, no hint of orange. At palate shows fine tannins a nice acidity, and an interesting sapid tone. Long finish.

Inspired by the degree of the Appellation governing "Eau de vie des cotes du Rhone", La Nerthe revived a forgotten tradition. The Chateau now produces "Fine de chateau du Pape" the vintage eau de vie distilled from wines that have successfully passed the degustation d'agrement, the tasting permitting the wine to be classified as an AOC Chateauneuf du Pape. Their wines are amongst the best Chateauneuf du Pape and accordingly their 1995 Fine (Brandy) is a rare admirable expression of Grenache.
