Château La Nerthe Clos de Beauvenir Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  302802

Transparent yellow. Smoky, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, along with a suave floral nuance and a touch of iodine. Sappy, concentrated and lively on the palate, offering pear liqueur, tangerine, honey and buttered toast flavors that are given spine and lift by a core of juicy acidity. Emphatically echoes the mineral and pear notes and shows excellent delineation on a long, seamless finish. Drinking window: 2022-2030. Score - 94. (Josh Raynolds,, Oct. 2018)
