Review

A cofermentation of La Nerthe's oldest plots of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, this hedonistic red offers radiant black cherry and blackberry flavors kissed by whispers of white pepper and walnut skins. Matured in a combination of new barriques (40%) and foudres (60%), it's a rounded, voluptuous sip framed by firm, gripping tannins. At peak now–2030 but likely to hold longer still.
