Chateau la Nerthe grows its grapes for the white Châteauneuf-du-Pape near a natural spring, which gives the grapes an additional nightly coolness to develop their aromas. This Chateauneuf is powerful, but also has an inner tension that does not make it appear broad. It gets an additional bite from the barrel aging, which is given to the Roussanne grape variety, which makes up about a third of the cuvée. Here you will find aromas of yellow stone fruit such as peach and apricot, as well as ripe citrus fruits and pineapple. Despite all the richness of taste, it is not inelegant. This wine is ideal as a companion for crustaceans, white meat and cream sauces.
