La Nerthe's legendary Cuvee des Cadettes is made exclusively from very low-yielding, 100-year-old vines from a delimited parcel, "Les Cadettes." A wine of extraordinary richness and depth, "Cuvée des Cadettes" embodies the unique attributes which established the legendary stature of the estate. A blend of 60 percent Grenache, 30 percent Mourvèdre and ten percent Syrah, the highly concentrated flavors of this wine lend themselves particularly well to long cellar aging.
"A seductive wine that's rich and ripe, thick and delightful, filling the palate with sweet fruit that cascades in a symphony of subtle violet, plum and blackberry--all presented in a creamlike texture that sets off a song and dance of pleasure on the palate. Amazing."-Wine Spectator
"The luxury cuvee of 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes (a 1,000-case blend of 39% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 25% Mourvedre, aged in small barrels, of which 50% are new) is a top-class wine offering an attractive, moderately intense nose of spice box, blackberries, vanilla, and minerals. Medium to full-bodied and layered, with superb ripeness and purity, a sweet attack, and moderate tannin in the finish, it is accessible, but will be even better in 2-3 years. It will keep for 15-18 years."-The Wine Advocate

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.

As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome.
