- Chateau La Nerthe Les Cassagnes Cotes du Rhone Villages
Power, structure and color are the signatures of this vintage. In appearance, a very deep purple with violet hints. On the nose, it's very expressive with notes of small red and black berries along with floral and spice notes. On the palate it's very round, dominated by the Syrah's spicy notes. Thanks to the tannins it shows excellent maturity and very good length with full ripeness. Additionally, it's well balanced with significant aging potential.
