A Pape White, Love at First Sight
1871—The wines of Chateau-neuf-du-Pape [sic] owe their trade value...to their spirituosity. One of the most remarkable vineyards of the district is La Nerthe.... "A Treatise on the Origin, Nature, and Varieties of Wine," by Drs. Thudichum and Dupre, London
1996—While Chateauneuf-Du-Pape production has been chiefly red, white Pape is becoming more abundant, increasing from 19,000 cases in 1978 to 78,000 cases in 1993. Overall quality has also improved dramatically, changing from heavy, low-acid to a crisp, fresher style with less wood aging...La Nerthe, Chateauneuf's most elegant property, makes whites that should not be overlooked. Although they have plenty of fruit and elegance in youth, they are deliberately designed to develop in the bottle for over a decade.
..."Rhone Renaissance," by Remington Norman
It's a high-octane, memorable white...Chateau La Nerthe's $33 White Chateauneuf-du-Pape. So if you like 'em big and bold, pour this with smoked turkey, honey-baked ham, or your favorite veal dish. My 13 tasters gave it a resounding HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating.

Chateau La Nerthe
The Pope's majestic new chateau was completed north of Avignon in 1333. Six hundred and eleven years later (August 1944) the Germans blew it up.
