2013 Chateuneuf-du-Pape Rhone Valley

Chateau La Nerthe 2013 Clos de Beauvenir is a fresh and fruity blend of 42% Grenache Blanc, 31% Roussanne, 6% Clairette, and 11% Bourboulenc. With a grey-tinted, straw hue, this Clos de Beauvenir exudes intense, lush aromas of floral notes from yellow fruit-bearing trees (vine peach) with exotic hints of pineapple and mango. The 2013 Châteauneuf-du-Pape bouquet truly conveys maturity and elegance. The palate, on the other hand, offers contrast with freshness, balance, and length. The power remains very contained: a sign of outstanding ageing potential. The finish is juicy, salty, with toasted almond and ripe fruits notes (pineapple, melon) as well as a never-ending elegant sensation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Possessing more brioche, honeysuckle, citrus and white flowers, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Clos de Beauvenir Blanc is a more focused, fresh and lively example of this cuvée. Made from a similar blend of 59% Roussanne, 33% Clairette and the balance Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc aged ten months in 88% French oak, the wine is medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, with terrific length on the finish. This beauty will be better in another year and evolve for a decade or more, although, as always, drinking in the first 3-4 years is always the sound bet.
