Wine & Spirits Review
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 character of the acidity brings lemon to mind; it is, however, pretty and very firm, a wine that could age, or take on monkfish in brown butter right now.
VinoUS Media Review
(70% aged in stainless steel tanks and 30% in used barriques): Pale gold. A sharply focused, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh pear, Meyer lemon and honeysuckle, joined by a subtle touch of fennel. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors underscored by a smoky mineral quality. Fleshy but focused and nervy, finishing with lingering stoniness and strong tenacity. (Josh Raynolds)
