Description

The balance and fullness of a Rhône Valley white 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 comes from a vintage with contrasting weather conditions. Despite low rainfall, the soils were able to replenish their water reserves, enabling the vines to withstand the summer heat. Ripening of the grapes was slightly delayed by the rain at the end of August and September. With yields higher than the previous year, the harvest was spread over several weeks, finishing on 6 October.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand and meticulously sorted on a table before being taken to the press to gently extract the juice. Fermentation of the Roussanne takes place in barrels, while the other grape varieties are vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged on fine lees. The final blend is made just before bottling.
