The Vineyard: Located in Serignan-du-Comtat, which is between Orange and Avignon, the 40+ year old vineyard combines all traditional grape varietals for the Southern Rhône Valley; Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre, Carignan, and Cinsault. The vines are planted in soils deep in calcareous sandstones well sited on gently undulating slopes. Les Cassagnes de la Nerthe is owned by the Richard family, like Château La Nerthe (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) and Prieuré de Montézargues (Tavel). Christian Voeux is the winemaker and manager of all three estates. Harvest & Aging: Summer was hot and dry, allowing the grapes to perfectly ripen. The famous “Mistral’ wind, cold and dry, blows very frequently through the vineyards protecting them from diseases. The vines, facing south and grown on terraces are planted on a soil composed of sand, sandstone and calcareous rocks. The area is rich with centuries old olive and grain groves which shows a significant historical agricultural heritage. The grape varieties are traditionally Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre with old Carignan added for their unique bouquet and structure. The vines are approximately 30 years old and all the vineyards are certified “organically grown” by Ecocert.
