Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from 116.1 acres of traditional Gobelet-trellised southeast-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in French foudres (large, neutral oak barrels).


Interesting Facts
The Chateau, owned by the de Chabanne family, was the hunting lodge for the nearby Chateau de la Chaize, whose estates in the 17th Century extended to the Saone River (approximately 6.2 miles). La Chaise was a confessor to Louis XIV and was awarded the land for his intercession with Heaven on behalf of the French king.


Serving Hints

Chateau de Nervers pairs well with lamb shanks, charcuterie and cheeses.
