Winemaker Notes

Deep red color with a purple border. On the nose, intense red fruits with some black cherry notes. A beautiful freshness on the palate, with roundness. The finish is long, with notes of candied red fruit highlighted by sweet spices. Fresh, silky texture on the finish.

Enjoy with grilled, roasted or stewed pork, beef, duck, veal and lamb. This wine is perfect with pizza or your favorite Asian dishes. Also a great pairing with both soft and hard cheeses.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The plush, velvety, fruit-forward 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages les Cassagnes de la Nerthe is a medium to full-bodied beauty. No, it's not the most complex wine, but it delivers tons of almond-tinged cherries, ample concentration and waves of supple tannins. The fruit here is compelling.

James Suckling
Bright, red berries, dried flowers and wild herbs make for a classic style on the nose. Plush, even, elegant and fine tannins map out a fresh palate with plenty of fresh, red-fruit flavors. Drink or hold.

Chateau La Nerthe, France
Chateau La Nerthe  Winery Image
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 expression of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

An appellation full of some of the most delightful and particularly charming reds, Côtes du Rhône Villages includes the best villages of the greater Côtes du Rhône appellation. The possibility for an appellation promotion exists for every named village but each has to achieve and prove superior quality before an upgrade will be granted. The main ones today are Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de-Venise, Vinsobres, Rasteau and Cairanne.

The Gigondas appellation, while sometimes producing wines with a touch of rusticity, can often rival Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Its elevations are higher and soils richer in limestone. Vacqueyras reds are more concentrated than the more general Côtes du Rhône reds and must be at least one half comprised of Grenache by law. Beaumes de Venise also includes some excellent higher elevation spots for making snappy, fruity and spicy reds but historically the appellation’s esteem came from its fragrant, sweet and golden Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.
