This lot comprises three bottles of red wine from the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation from the 1994 vintage, including one bottle of Châteauneuf du Beaucastel and two bottles of Château La Nerthe Cuvée des Cadettes.

The wine region on the Rhône is not only very old, it also produces some of the best wines that, despite their longevity, can also provide great enjoyment in their youth. After Lyon, the Rhône hurriedly descends to the south. Here, on the west bank, the Côte Rôtie wines are produced, while the Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage appellations are situated on the east bank. In the northern reaches of the Rhône, Syrah is king. White wines are produced from Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier. The vines grow in mineral-rich, structure-giving floors consisting of weathered granite with feldspar, gneiss and mica. A completely different world, in terms of topography, viticulture and culture, is located in the southern Rhône valley: here, Mediterranean grape varieties like the red and white Grenache are at home. They dominate the Cuvées, which, like the Châteauneuf-du-Pape, is made from a dozen different grape varieties.

The fame of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation on the southern part of the Rhône dates back to the former papal residence. Today, papal insignia such as the tiara and the Keys of Heaven can still be found on the bottles. The vines grow on pebble scree, galets, which accelerate grape maturity in the hot climate to produce full-bodied, opulent wines. It’s typical for red and white Châteauneuf-du-Pape to be made from a variety of accepted grape varieties, however the most important is Grenache, the soul of these wines.

1994 was an average vintage for Rhône wine, most winemakers were unlucky enough to pick their grapes in the rain. Those who began earlier were able to produce some great wines.

The 1994 vintage Château de Beaucastel was rated 90 points by Robert Parker in 2003. The wine was given a score of 87 points in Wine Spectator magazine in 1997. The 1994 vintage Cuvée des Cadettes was rated 90 points by Parker in 2000 and 92 points in Wine Spectator in 1997.

The fill levels are excellent (< 3 cm). Some labels are very slightly damaged. The capsules are in perfect condition.
