The impeccable cellars of Chateau La Nerthe
Château La Nerthe is in contention for being one of the oldest estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Historical documents from 1560 mention the estate. The historic Château was built in 1736. It also gets credit for being one of the first estates to bottle their own wine. This took place to some extent starting in 1784. Château La Nerthe is one of the first, if not the first estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape to export their wine outside of France. Another first that belongs to the estate is that La Nerthe began the practice of destemming 100% of their vines in the 1800’s. By this point in time, Château La Nerthe was the most expensive wine from the Southern Rhône.

Was lucky enough to taste this wine with Kobrand Rep Antoine Collet. The blend is 50% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and it was aged all in wood. The 2015 gushes from the bottle. It is ripe, round and voluptuous yet still classy and balanced. There is anise, cumin, cinnamon and clove a potpourri of exotic flavors that mix with scrumptious blue fruits, ripe cherries, moderate tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is long and layered
(Wine Spectator 92)
Ripe and bright, with a mix of plum, raspberry and blueberry fruit flavors that are well-defined, picking up anise as well as singed sandalwood and juniper notes along the way. The fruit stays persistent through the finish, with a perfumed hint filling in. Best from 2020 through 2035.
(Wine Advocate 92)
There’s almost 20% new oak in this 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape, which gives it an overlay of exotic toasted coconut and vanilla aromas and flavors. Beyond that, there’s ample weight, hints of cinnamon and clove and cherry fruit that lingers on the silky finish.
