Chateau de la Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes 1998,  (WA96, ST94, WS94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Chateau de la Nerthe Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes

Vintage: 1998
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA96, ST94, WS94
Rated 96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A great example of this famous cuvee, which is almost always Mourvedre-dominated, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes is just hitting its adolescence. Dense bluish/purple with an extraordinary nose of blueberry, black raspberry, graphite, smoke, and mineral, this full-bodied, rich wine has resolved most of its tannins and thrown off any evidence of the new oak barrels it was aged in. With a finish that goes on for a good 45 seconds, this is a modern-styled, but brilliant example of Chateauneuf du Pape where the Mourvedre is the dominant grape in the blend. Perhaps the 2001 will achieve this level of quality, but the 1998 remains one of the finest Cuvee des Cadettes ever made. It should continue to drink well for another 20 years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
