Winemaker Notes

Dark red, with a purple border. The nose is rich, pure and complex, with black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate, lots of roundness, with nice refined tannins. Finish is very long, with notes of black cherry and black berry, with a silky touch on the tongue. A feeling of youth and freshness emerges. The aromas given by the ageing in oak are still visible, with hints of spices and roasting, but they will be soon integrated into the wine and will make it really complex. A wine with a great cellaring potential and with an impressing aromatic expression.

Blend: 44% Grenache Noir, 37% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Juicy and lively, with good energy coursing through the core of plum, anise, blackberry and fruitcake flavors, while sweet spice and juniper hints fill the finish. Offers a chewy feel without being heavy. Best from 2016 through 2023.
WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
One of the best traits of blended wines versus making wine based on 100% of one grape variety is complexity, and nowhere is this more evident than in the southern Rhône Valley and the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The 2012 Château La Nerthe—made from a challenging vintage—shows wonderful richness, intricacies, and balance. The wine's flavors of red fruit, brown leaves, and rich earth take full advantage of its mix of grape varieties—44% Grenache Noir, 37% Syrah, 14% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault. Drinks well now.

Chateau La Nerthe Winery Video

Archives affirm Chateau La Nerthe’s existence as early as 1560, while suggesting an even more distant past dating to the dawn of the region’s wine culture in the 12th century making it one of Chateauneuf’s oldest estates. Located in the heart of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC region of southern France not far from Avignon, the 225 acres of Chateau La Nerthe vineyards are located in a single block around the Chateau and have been certified Organic since 1998. The terroir is very typical for the region: vineyards runs along a slope, at the top of which the vines dig their roots into soils of sandy-clay, on the surface there is a layer of the famous galettes, large, round, well-worn stones that originated in the Alps, having been carried down to the Rhône by the glaciers of previous ice ages. The further down the slope of the vineyard you travel, the more these stones dominate. All 14 of the permitted primary varietals are planted-Grenache dominates 62% of vineyards and the vines average over 40 years old. Chateau La Nerthe is the prime expression of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
