Les Granières de La Nerthe captures the spirit of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with its mosaic of soils and grape varieties. It illustrates the elegance and finesse of wines from Château La Nerthe, the famed property owned by the Richard family. The name originates from the granary, or attic space where the château used to store grains at a time when local agriculture included food production. Made from the estate’s younger vines, this blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault & Mourvèdre expresses a lively and fruit-driven character. The wine is aged in casks and ‘foudres’ or old, large French oak barrels (no new oak is used). Bottling is done earlier than the estate’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge to capture the wine’s marvelous fruit expression and elegant tannins. Enjoy upon release.

Harvest Note
2019 is an exceptional vintage. The overall conditions were the same as the rest of region and most of the country: hot and dry, with below average rainfall combined with warmer temperatures every single month of the year. Thankfully, groundwater reserves had been replenished by heavy rainfall the previous autumn. The magnificent weather continued into September, bringing the fruit to full ripeness and delivering a crop of impeccably healthy grapes.
Tasting Note
The aromas of cherry and blackcurrant are balanced by sweet spices including cinnamon. The elegant cherry continues on the palate, supported by fine tannins and a long, refreshing finish.
Food Pairing
Grilled red meats, Provençal and Mediterranean recipes such as Osso Bucco or Beef Stew.
