Product DescriptionDecanter Magazine Review
Château la Nerthe continues its return to form with its 2019 Tradition, a remarkably high-quality wine considering the volumes made. It's grown on lieux-dits La Crau, Les Escondudes, La Nerthe and Les Revès on sandy soils and galets roulés. Aged 75% in foudre, 25% in new barriques. The intriguing blend, and the parcel-by-parcel approach, has yielded a very complete, harmonious and balanced wine. It's closed for now, but has a good sense of freshness. Subtle damson hints, nicely tucked in and focussed on the palate with a distinctly saline finish. Drinking Window: 2022-2028.
Wine Tasting Notes
Dark red, with a purple border. The nose is rich, pure, and complex, with notes of black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, lots of roundness, with soft refined tannins. Finish is long, with notes of black cherry, black berry, and a silky texture. A feeling of youth and freshness emerges. A wine with great cellaring potential and with an impressive aromatic expression.
