As early as 1199, Prieuré de Montézargues was a fully functioning monastery. The property covers 84 acres sheltered from the Mistral winds by the Montagne Noire mountain range. The original stone monastery buildings blend seamlessly into the landscape forming a micro-terroir and the unique personality of the Montézargues estate vineyards.

harvest note

The 2019 harvest started off with a mild mild winter, which helped kickstart vine development earlier than usual, cooler conditions in April and May slowed this down. June brought very hot weather which caused some stress on the fruit and foliage. The hottest part of the summer was bookended by major rain which helped stave off heat stress for the most part. Overall the harvest was a good size and produced a healthy crop.

tasting note

An appealing rosé with a brilliant pink color. A rich nose showing red berry tones such as strawberry and gooseberry. Fresh on the palate, with persisting citrus notes. Well rounded body and a long, structured finish.

food pairing

Wonderful to enjoy with cheeses and fruit, this wine is a truly versatile companion to many styles of cuisine. Pair with grilled or sautéed salmon dishes, poultry in light to medium weight sauces and fresh salads.

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.
