One of the oldest and largest estates of Châteauneuf du Pape extending over 220 acres around the castle. The vineyard of Château La Nerthe was born in the XIVth century when vine culture spread over the area.

 

Critic Reviews:

The dark, deep, inky colour of the wine shows immediately the concentration of the vintage. Nose of blackcurrants, black tea, dried flowers is definitely standing out. The mouth is rich, fruity, velvety, with an incredibly layered tannin structure. The wine is balanced, pure, really intense and long, an incredible ageing potential. Grenache noir (37 %), Syrah (29 %), Mourvèdre (27 %), Cinsault (7%).
