A seductive wine that's rich and ripe thick and delightful filling the palate with sweet fruit that cascades in a symphony of subtle violet plum and blackberry--all presented in a creamlike texture that sets off a song... A seductive wine that's rich and ripe thick and delightful filling the palate with sweet fruit that cascades in a symphony of subtle violet plum and blackberry--all presented in a creamlike texture that sets off a song and dance of pleasure on the palate.

The 1999 (39% Grenache 35% Syrah and 26% Mourvedre all aged in barrel) does not reveal the fat of the 2000 or 1998 but it is an elegant well-delineated effort with copious vibrancy freshness and cedar black cherry and cassis fruit. Medium to full-bodied with a moderately muscular personality it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and keep for 15-18. The top cuvee of the most majestic estate in Chateauneuf du Pape Chateau de la Nerthe the Cuvee des Cadettes is only made in the finest years. The ideal production desired by administrator Alain Dugas is 1000-1500 cases. The blend changes from year to year but it generally includes a high percentage of Mourvedre.
