AOP Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Château La Nerthe 2018

€960 Flacon de 10cl

The Châteauneuf-du-Pape white, which has been certified organic since 1998, accounts for just 10% of the wine made by Château La Nerthe. This is a connoisseur’s white wine displaying a beautiful lemon gold color and an intensely floral nose with a fresh hint of peppermint. On the palate, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape is zippy yet round. Baking spice aromas lead into orange zest flavors on the finish of this well-balanced wine.
