Winemaker's Notes:

Roussanne 45%, Grenache 46%, Clairette 9% & Bourboulenc 1%. The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc exhibits honeted, waxy, white currant, melon and pear notes, crisp acidity and plenty of freshness as well as fruit. Drink it over the next several years.

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.
