Château La Nerthe

Les Cassagnes Côtes-du-Rhône Villages

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: France / Rhône

This wine originating from a Domaine vineyard in Serignan-du-Comtat, north of Orange and Avignon. The 30+ year old vineyard combines all the traditional grape varietals for the Southern Rhône Valley: Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. The vines are planted in different types of soil with calcareous sandstones with very little clay that are well sited on gently undulating slopes producing high quality grapes that turn into fleshy and balanced wines.

The grapes are manually harvested immediately whent he grapes hit maturity with the grapes sorted on tables. Co-fermentation of the 3 vines occurs in vats for a long maceration, about 3 weeks. The extraction is done by soft methods in order to respect the fruit and tannic quality. Aged in stainless steel vats on fine lees for 9 months until bottling.

tasting note

In appearance, this blend has a dark, profound color. On the nose it delivers waves of clean red berry fruit flavors along with some perfumed notes and sweet spices. The finish is very delicate and balanced. Overall, this is a medium to full-bodied wine with a very silky texture.

food pairing

Enjoy with vegetable dishes , grilled red meats and pasta bolognese.

One of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s oldest estates, archives affirm Château La Nerthe’s existence as early as 1560 and suggest an even more distant past dating to the dawn of the region’s wine culture in the 12th century.
