Château la Nerthe
Château la Nerthe is nestled among some of the world’s best known estates in the historic appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Among the many reasons for the appellation’s success, the area benefits from a unique microclimate that is extremely favourable for winemaking.
The domaine sees 200 days of sunshine a year, which helps to produce grapes that reach maturity quicker than many other estates, combined with the famous northerly wind called the ‘Mistral’, which prevents fungus spreading on vines. The team at Chateau La Nerthe harness these natural advantages to produce both white and red wines, the latter of particularly exceptional quality.
The nose is fresh and fruity. We can find little red fruits and black fruits notes and also touches of black pepper. The palate is frank and elegant. The finish is long with round tannins
