  • Official historical record suggested that Chateau La Nerthe has existed since 1560, possibly dating back even to the 12th century
  • Previous owners in the past centuries have gradually built up the fame of La Nerthe, and to very large extent, the worldwide reputation of wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape
  • La Nerthe experimented growing a diverse grape varietals in the area, and the practice formed the current appellation regulation which allows winemakers to use up to 13 different varietals in their blends 
  • As Parker described it: The top cuvee of the most majestic estate in Chateauneuf du Pape, Chateau de la Nerthe, the Cuvee des Cadettes is only made in the finest years

Wine Spectator: 93
"Gorgeous modern-style red, with fancy new oak; it works thanks to lovely sweet fruit, ripe tannins and exotic aromas (floral, violet, toasted oak). Full-bodied, with plum, blackberries, cassis—a great success that should woo the international wine set." (Dec 2003)

Wine Advocate: 93
"This cuvee represents the essence of the appellation, and has considerable potential for longevity. The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes is a blend of 38% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 27% Mourvedre. This blend was modified from the core blend I tasted last year, and includes the highest percentage of Syrah used in any Cuvee des Cadettes to date. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet, concentrated, opulent style with plenty of power, loads of sweet blackberry liqueur notes and a touch of vanilla in the background. Sweet, chewy, plush, sexy, and voluptuous, it may not be the longest-lived example, but it is undeniably charming and disarming." (Feb 2003)

IWC: 93
"Full red-ruby. Roasted plum, strawberry, woodsmoke, violet, minerals, baking spices and underbrush on the complex nose; quintessential Chateauneuf aromas, despite the high percentages of syrah and mourvedre. Then sweet and rich but also bright and penetrating, with chewy depths of flavor and superb persistence. This wine's terrific grip suggests it will age slowly and well." (Jan 2003)
