Grape: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

Tasting Notes

Dark color, 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 segwaying into a silky mouthfeel where a sense of youth and freshness emerges. The aromas imparted by the ageing in oak are still evident, with hints of spices and toast, but they will be soon integrated into the wine making it even more complex. A wine with a great cellaring potential and impressive aromatic expression.

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.
