Wine Spectator 93
"Lots of flashy bacon and mocha toast aromas and flavors lead the way, with good plum and black cherry fruit behind it. Has a sweet, silky texture through the exotic finish, and will have lots of fans for its lush, modern approach. Drink now through 2020. 1,165 cases made. JM"
Chateau La NertheView all from Chateau La Nerthe
Archives affirm Château La Nerthe's existence as early as 1560, while suggesting an even more distant past dating to the dawn of the region's wine culture in the 12th century, making it one of Châteauneuf's oldest estates and a benchmark producer of the region. Châteauneuf-du-Pape – means "New Castle of the Pope" referring to the time in the 14th century when the pope resided in Avignon, not in Rome. In 1986 the Richard family, involved in wine making and wine distribution since 1892, purchased Château La Nerthe and has undergone a vast rehabilitation both in viticulture and viniculture.
