Château La Nerthe - Cuvée des Cadettes

Rhône Valley - Châteauneuf du Pape AOP

Château La Nerthe is one of the most beautiful and renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with a rich and ancient history. In 1750, the vineyard covered nearly 50 ha and was already exporting to Europe and even to Moscow. In 1784, the first bottling took place on the property. Today managed by Rémi Jean, these 92 hectares of vines are managed organically, without chemical fertilizers, weedkillers or synthetic pesticides.

The vinification is carried out half with supplemented grape varieties and half with separate grape varieties. Maceration is done in wooden vats, with automatic punching down, according to the Burgundian principle (pressing the marc into the vat) to promote the extraction of tannins and color. Aging takes place in new barrels

It’s a great wine. The first nose is spicy, with notes of cigar and incense, then the fruit appears, of great purity. It is firm and concentrated on the palate, with well-coated and very precise tannins.

Grape variety: 55% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah, 17% Grenache, 3% miscellaneous
Taste and flavor: Powerful and robust
