Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby color with a purple rim. A wonderful, expressive nose where ripe black and red fruits (cherry & black currant) combine with spices. Full- bodied with gorgeous, silky tannins, a balanced palate and a particularly long finished where notes of dates add an extra layer of complexity.

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.
