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. 2017 vintage, the smallest harvest of the last forty years.

tasting note

This rosé wine is bright with a fuchsia pink color. A rich fruity nose showing nice little red berries notes (raspberry and strawberry) . Fresh and balanced on the palate, rounded, then offering a deep finish with grapefruit notes. A Tavel rosé that is extremely pleasant, refreshing, and can be enjoyed on every occasion.

food pairing

Stuffed tomatoe, rack of lamb, summer vegetables, fresh goat 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.
