    (Chateau la Nerthe Châteauneuf du Pape) This wine has a rich and deep hue, still with plenty of admirable red pigment. Deep quality of fruit on the nose, although I feel I can sense the burn of alcohol here, along with the aromas of macerated cherries, smoke and leather which all have some appeal. Lots of texture on entry, with a firm, hard outer shell, a touch raw perhaps, with a solid backbone of alcohol leading into some heat in the finish. There is a lot of texture and substance though, quite polished, it is even a touch stony and firm at times, although there is a more chewy tannic substance in the finish. Good length but that heat shows again. Some good points here though, especially those cherry and cinnamon elements, and during moments on the palate where the substance of the wine seems to rein in the heat. Nevertheless, I don't rate this wine as highly as I did four years ago.

    (Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf du Pape) A dark wine full of complex aromas, liquorice and herbs alongside the deep fruit. Big a lusciously textured on the palate, but with a fine tannic backbone. Complex and meaty. This all seems rather soft and plush at the moment and doesn't really have the delineation of a great wine, but I think it should cellar rather well.
