Why We Love This Wine

One of the oldest & largest estates of Chateuneuf du Pape extending over 90 hectares of land around the castle, the vineyard of Chateau la Nerthe was born in the 14th century when vine culture began to spread across the area. This cuvee comes from a single plot established on Lieut-dit "Chemin de Chateauneuf" at the crossroads "La Crau Sud" & "La Font du Loup". There, Grenache finds its balance forgetting its powerful character & embracing finesse. The nose of this 100% Grenache Chateauneuf du Pape is exceptional. It is reminiscent of very intense fragrances of Asian spices and ripe red & dark berries. As subtle as the leading varietal it is composed of, this Cuvee is all at once elegant & powerful, deep & energetic, as well as smooth & solid. This wine was clearly crafted to impress! Enjoy this wine with a slow-cooked Beef or Veal Stew and rich Mutton Soup.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The wine is aromatic & delicate with a mix of red fruit, spices, & garrigue in the bouquet. Racy & elegant in the mouth without heaviness, it has a contained, unpretentious power and there is great length. It is marked by a true purity of style & brilliance. This is expression without elaboration, showing what the grape variety in harmony with its terroir can offer in terms of balance and elegance.
