Winemaker's Notes:

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is is a little known but striking wine. Blended from Grenache Blanc, Boubelenc, Roussanne & Clairette, the wine's unique spicy yet floral qualities make it a crowd pleaser and its firm acidity provides the structure for a rare white which can benefit from a small amount of aging.

About Chateau La Nerthe:

Chateau La Nerthe was born in the 12th century around the time vines were first planted in the stone-strewn soil of Chateauneuf-du-Pape ("the Pope's new castle"), the place the pontiffs chose for their summer residence when the papal court relocated to Avignon. Chateau La Nerthe has always been graced by the attentive care of its successive owners, and they have all contributed to the reputation for excellence that La Nerthe has acquired and maintained.
