CHATEAU LA NERTHE CHÂTEAUNEUF DU PAPE CLOS DU BEAUVENIR 2013

Wine Region: Rhone Valley, France

Grape: Roussanne, Clairette

Tasting Notes

The color is straw yellow with gray reflections. The nose is very expressive, very exuberant. There are floral notes of yellow flesh fruits (vine peach) but also some exotic notes (mangoes, pineapple). The bouquet gives a real impression of maturity and wealth. The mouth contrasts with the nose. The wine is fresh, balanced, long. The power is there too but remains very contained, pledge of very good aging. The finish is juicy, saline on some notes toasted (almonds) and ripe fruit (pineapple, melon) with an endless feeling of elegance.

About the Winery

Here is one of the 3 largest properties of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation with its 92 hectares of vines. Very old vineyard, the first archives of Château la Nerthe date back to the 16th century when the estate was named the Ferme du Beauvenir. His name today echoes one of the members of the family who bought it in the 16th century and who was none other than a prior living on the Nerthe Massif.
