#1 Chateauneuf Du Pape - Chateau La Nerthe, 2004
World Wine Groups Tasting Notes: Chateau La Nerthe was blind tasted against a Perrin & Fils and a Clos De L'Oratoire. All tested very well with the Chateau La Nerthe coming in at a 13.16 against a 12.8 and a 12.6 respectively. Very close scoring considering the blending of grapes that takes place with the Chateauneuf's. Scores were lower than we saw with the Malbec's last month - this is probably due to the fact that the Chateauneuf's need to age longer. Still an excellent choice across the board.
