Power, structure and color are undoubtedly the characteristics of this vintage. The La Nerthe Les Cassagnes Rhone Villages Rouge has a deep dark red color with purple reflections. Very expressive on the nose: the prelude is round, dominated by Syrah (floral notes of violets and spices). Thanks to the tannins of excellent ripeness, the Grenache shows a dense, robust but supple structure. Very good length on the palate, full maturity and a fine tannin extraction give this balanced wine a considerable aging potential.
