Vineyard & Vinification Note

The current terroir is thus composed of rocky slopes of clay and sand, rising above the Rhône river. While it is difficult to grow wine in such soils, the rocks do help ripen the berries since they store heat during the day and warm the vines at night. They also allow water to penetrate into the soil, reducing stagnation and disease.

VINES’ AGE 80 years (average) – some are centenaries

The grapes are hand picked and directly sorted when arriving in the cellar.

The 3 grape varietals are put all together in the same wooden tank where the fermentation takes place. Pumping overs and punching downs are done during fermentation to ensure the best extraction of the berries compounds. The maceration lasts 3 weeks.

The final blending will age for 12 months partly in large wooden casks and partly in new oak barrels.

CELLARING : Until 15 years

Tasting Note

This Cuvée is produced only in the best vintages. Expressive nose with notes of incredible youth on sweet spices, black cherries and fermentation aromas. Once again is the freshness, youth and red fruits expression on the palate: notes of fresh grapes are superimposed on those of black fruits. A rich, complex and generous wine with discreet ageing notes, silky and ripe tannins. A delicious wine to keep for great occasions for the next decade.

Wine Spectator Tasting Note

A ripe, lush style, with warm and inviting plum, fig and boysenberry confiture notes gliding through. Offers a beautiful polished feel, with suave anise and black tea flavors filling in on the finish while the fruit just sails through. Relies primarily on fruit, and you can’t blame it for that. Drink now through 2030. 1,050 cases made. 94 Points – James Molesworth, July 2018

Wine Advocate Tasting Note

La Nerthe’s 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes is a blend of approximately one-third each Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Eighty percent of the wine spent a year in new oak barrels, but much of that has been absorbed into the wine, and I see that my notes don’t make reference to overt oak descriptors. Scents of raspberry and spice lead the way, followed by a firm, full-bodied palate. The tannins are present from front to back, but they’re ripe and silky, lingering elegantly on the finish. 94 points – Joe Czerwinski, Oct 2017
