harvest note

Despite a very cold month of January, the coldest of the last five years, thanks to a higher temperatures early February, late March, as in 2014, the future vintage seems to be early. 2017v is the second warmest vintage of the last 20 years, after 2003 but before 2015 and 2009. Rainfalls in July, August and September is only 17 mm. Exceptionally healthy, the 2017 harvest started in the first days of September. Due to a lack of grapes, some vintners sometimes ended very quickly. 2017v, the smallest harvest of the last forty years.

tasting note

The color is pale pink fuchsia, very bright. The nose is frank, lively, expressive, on white flowers and citrus fruits (pink grapefruit). The palate is fresh and the gooseberry meets again the grapefruit. A wine of great freshness and easy pleasure!

food pairing

Ideal for picnic in the sun, grilled fish, spaghetti with tomatoe sauce.

Chateau-la-nerthe-230px Ralph-garcin-winemaker-230px

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.
