Château La Nerthe - Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc

  Rhône Valley - Châteauneuf du Pape AOP


Vineyard
Owned by the Richard family since 1985, Château La Nerthe is one of the most beautiful and renowned estates in Châteauneuf du Pape. The first bottling at the property took place in 1784. Today managed by Rémi Jean, the 92 hectares of vines are managed organically, without chemical fertilizers, weedkillers or synthetic pesticides. The terroir, very representative of the appellation, alternates sand, clay, limestone and the famous rolled pebbles.

Winemaking
Manual harvest with sorting of the grapes on the table. The whole grapes are taken to the press to slowly extract the best juices. The fermentation of Roussanne takes place in barrels of 228 and 600 liters (1/3 of new barrels) to be aged on fine lees. The other grape varieties are first vinified in stainless steel vats with temperature control and then preserved on their fine lees. The assembly takes place shortly before bottling.

Tasting
Pale yellow color. On the nose, we find aromas of stone fruits (peach, apricot) and white flowers. On the palate, it is adorned with a beautiful complexity, with notes of citrus (lime), exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) with a nice acidity. It is a Châteauneuf-du-Pape with fine and well-integrated woodiness, where the finish is expressive with persistent zesty and mineral notes.
