Clos de Beauvenir Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: France / Rhône

Clos de Beauvenir Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc comes from a single vineyard enclosed by Provencal galets. Hand harvesting and sorting is done early in the morning to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. All the whole grapes except Roussane are slowly pressed for 3 hours to extract only premium juice. After 24 hours, the juice is racked and fermentation begins at a low temperature to protect all flavors. The Roussanne fermentation takes place in 228 liter barrels (1/3 new), and then ages on lees. Wine from the other grape varietals are made in temperature controlled stainless steel vats and then stored to age on lees. The wine is aged 9 months in a combination (85/15) of French oak barrels and stainless steel vats and blending takes place shortly before bottling.

tasting note

Nice pale yellow, green tints with a lot of brilliance. The nose is intense and complex with white flowers, honeysuckle, citrus, brioche, nuts and pastry aromas. On the palate, a perfect balance between roundness and sweetness; oak is fine, elegant and very well integrated. The finish is long on vanilla and candied fruit with a mineral touch.

food pairing

A perfect complement to nearly all seafood dishes, especially full- flavored shellfish and assertively seasoned snapper or striped bass. This complex and refined cuvée is also well suited for poultry dishes, veal and pork as well as strong cheeses.

One of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s oldest estates, archives affirm Château La Nerthe’s existence as early as 1560 and suggest an even more distant past dating to the dawn of the region’s wine culture in the 12th century.
