How to Pronounce Châteauneuf-du-Pape? French Wine Pronunciation Tutorial


Châteauneuf-du-Pape is without a doubt the
most famous and possibly the best overall wine appellation of the Rhône Valley in France,
perhaps together with Côte-Rôtie. It is certainly one of those wine names you
should know how to pronounce to sound more knowledgeable about wine. Although, admittedly, it is not the easiest
to say. Easier said than pronounced, right? Well, that doesn’t make any sense! So how do you go about pronouncing Châteauneuf-du-Pape? Well, first you simply have to say Chateau. You know about Chateau, right? Then ‘neuf’ as in ‘enough’, just the
‘nough’ part! Easy! Then ‘DU’, somewhat like ‘dew’. And finally, PAPE, like POP but with an A:
PAP. Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Châteauneuf-du-Pape
The typical French pronunciation if you can manage: Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Châteauneuf-du-Pape. To learn more about Châteauneuf-du-Pape,
I made a rather popular video about the 18 grapes, red and white that remarkably make
the unique red blend wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. You should certainly watch this to understand
AND pronounce Châteauneuf-du-Pape from now on. I’ll leave you to it, and I will see you
soon, in the wonderful world of wine. Au revoir! Bye bye…
