Château La Nerthe is one of the oldest properties in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is owned by the Richard family. This property boasts five centuries of history with the Château being built in the 18th century but historical winery records date as far back as 1560.
La Nerthe cultivates 92 hectares in Châteauneuf-du-Pape (divided into 57 parcels), two-thirds of which surround the Château; the third is located on the famous plateau of La Crau. This is a sustainably farmed property that has been certified organic since 1998. The old vineyard of Les Cassagnes is about 20km to the north of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
The La Nerthe Les Cassagnes, Côtes du Rhône Blanc has a nose that is very fresh and aromatic and entices with honeysuckle and ripe citrus notes, with a layer of peach and a hint of cooked lemon. The citrus note continues on the palate with layers of peach and apricot. A little ginger spice lingers and there is a lovely roundness to the wine complemented by a subtle richness and weight.
