Drink now or cellar for up to 8 years. Serve chilled.

One of the oldest and largest châteaux in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the historic Chateau La Nerthe estate can be traced right back to 1560 when it was founded by the Tulle de Villefranche family. In recent years it has established a reputation for well-made Châteauneuf-du-Pape reds as well as the lesser-known white Châteauneuf-du-Pape like this bottling. In total the chateau has 92 hectares of vineyards which are divided into 57 distinct plots, allowing the winemakers to pick and choose exactly what goes into each cuvee.

This particular white is composed of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne along with a dash of Clairette and Bourboulenc for extra complexity. The vines are planted on sandy soils scattered with the region’s characteristic large galets stones which are thought to enhance the elegance and finesse of the wine. There’s also a natural stream and woodland close by which helps to cool down the vineyards at night during the warm summer months to preserve freshness and varietal typicity.

In the glass there’s an enticing golden yellow hue with hints of ripe apricots, peaches, and vanilla spice from the 9 months of ageing in oak barrels. On the palate there’s a solid core of ripe orchard fruit balanced by zingy citrus and hints of ginger on the long finish. Thanks to the intensity and purity of this wine, it’s a great option to cellar for a few more years or enjoy now with dishes like roast chicken, risottos, or grilled fish served in a creamy sauce.
