Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1997
This luxury white cuvée, Clos de Beauvenir (60% Roussanne and 40 % Clairette) is named after the original name of the estate in the 16th Century. Selected from the finest parcels of old vines, this wine is truly an elixer in a class by itself. A gloriously perfumed, honeyed wine possessing full body, terrific acidity, tremendous delineation, and a layered texture.
Château La Nerthe is the oldest producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, producing wine since 1560. The winery has been certified organic since 1998, and is among the region’s top five wineries. La Nerthe is a leader in the art of blending, combining up to 13 varieties - so that no one dominates.
I'm in love.
