Winemaker's Notes:

Cuvee des Cadettes is a result of strict selections of the best Syrah, Grenache & Mourvedre Chateau La Nerthe has to offer combined with maturing in 100% small barrels. It is recognized as being among the finest bottlings of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

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.
