Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1999
The "Cuvée des Cadettes" was the name originally given to one of Château la Nerthe's cuvées by Commandant Ducos and which was reintroduced in 1986. The name comes from a very old parcel of the vineyard. Included in this cuvée are Grenaches from century-old vines, old Mourvèdres and old Syrahs, all vinified together in a wood pigeage tank. The maturing takes place exclusively in new barrels. Blending • Grenache 47 % • Mourvèdre 17 % • Syrah 36 % Vinification 18 days in pigeage tanks for 71% Matured 100 % in barrels for 18 months
