PRE-ARRIVAL SALE ON
92 POINT
CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE!

by Ben Giliberti, CW Director of Wine Education

 

Only Two Days Left For This Amazing Deal!
Pre-Arrival Sale Price Ends on Saturday!



2009 Château La Nerthe - Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-arrival)


"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Composed of 47% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre, it is surprisingly soft and evolved for La Nerthe, but that actually gives the wine additional appeal. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of blue and black fruits, lavender, licorice, truffles and garrigue. Full-bodied, supple textured, fleshy and succulent, it will provide enjoyment over the next 10-15 years."
92 points -- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Reg. price $44.99  
SALE!   $34.99

6+ bottles   $32.99 per bottle!



Although there are many excellent Chateauneuf-du-Papes being made today, only a relative handful seem to do everything quite as well as Château La Nerthe, one of the appellation's most prestigious estates. While offering all of the power expected of a traditional Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Château La Nerthe adds a distinctive element of posh refinement, which I have always found exceptionally appealing. The 2007 Château La Nerthe was one of my favorite wines of what has to be considered one of the best Rhône vintages in recent memory. The newest release, from the no less enthralling 2009 vintage, appears to be yet another triumph for the property. We are pleased to offer the 2009 Château La Nerthe for the low pre-arrival price of $34.99 a bottle, and just $32.99 a bottle if you buy 6 or more. That's up to a 27% discount off the regular price of $44.99!

The reviews have been ecstatic. Raves Robert Parker, awarding it an impressive score of 92, "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Composed of 47% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre, it is surprisingly soft and evolved for La Nerthe, but that actually gives the wine additional appeal. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of blue and black fruits, lavender, licorice, truffles and garrigue. Full-bodied, supple textured, fleshy and succulent, it will provide enjoyment over the next 10-15 years." We would also emphasize Château La Nerthe's remarkable food compatibility, which makes it a wine you will want to stock in your cellar, to have on hand for entertaining and for fine dinner parties.
