Simon Field MW (2013 Vintage)
"The relative shift in the balance of power from Grenache to Syrah and Mourvèdre has resulted in a 2013 that is darkly coloured, rich and softly spicy. The trademark Nerthe polish is by no means absent, but there is perhaps a little more black fruit than sometimes, and a more authoritative finish."
Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, October 2014 (2013 Vintage)
"Christian Voeux is better qualified than most when he compares 2013 to the most lauded vintages of the late 20th century. Before taking on the prize job at La Nerthe five years ago, Christian was the highly influential winemaker at Château Mont- Redon for 25 years. The prospect of low yields does not rule out ‘vendanges verte’, he muses, in the same way that cooler temperatures do not mean that the wines will be lacking in structure—QED. A superb 2013, La Nerthe’s classic Châteauneuf du Pape exhibits ample ripe blackberry, sweet cherries, licorice, new leather and spice. Made from 43% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre and the balance Cinsault, it spent 12 months in close to equal parts small barrel and larger foudre. Enjoy this medium-bodied, supple, elegant and downright pretty Châteauneuf over the coming decade."
91/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2013 Vintage)​
"Bright ruby-red. Sexy raspberry and floral pastille aromas show good clarity and hints of peppery spices and woodsmoke. Broad, supple and appealingly sweet, offering depth and intensity to the red and blue fruit and candied lavender flavors. Finishes long, supple and impressively energetic, with smooth tannins adding shape."
