Description

The intensity and the structure of a Châteauneuf-du-Pape red wine

The estate

A true symbol of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château La Nerthe is one of the oldest estates in the appellation. Their histories have been intertwined for five centuries, making Château La Nerthe a historic landmark of the region. Nestling in a sumptuous Provencal setting, the magnificent château overlooks an exceptional architectural and winegrowing heritage. With its cellars dating back to the 16th century, its 92-hectare vineyard and its organic farming certification obtained in 1998, the estate embodies the perfect balance between tradition and innovation. Since 1985, the Richard family has been designing the estate's wines and continues to write the history of Château La Nerthe. The boundless ambition of this exacting, innovative family brings its heritage to the top.

The vineyard

Nestled in the heart of the Rhône Valley, Château La Nerthe oversees soils of rolled pebbles, sand and clay typical of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This terroir benefits from a Mediterranean microclimate and generous sunshine, guaranteeing full grape ripeness.

The vintage

This Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine stems from a particularly early vintage. Warm temperatures from mid-spring accelerated flowering, while the heat and dryness of the summer encouraged rapid ripening of the grapes.

Winemaking and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are sorted on a table. A vatting period of at least 21 days is followed by regular pumping over and punching down of the cap. Numerous tastings are carried out during the fermentation phase. The wine is aged in wooden and stainless steel vats for 12 months, followed by blending and bottling 6 months later.

Grenache (40%)
