Château Mont-Redon owns 100 hectares (250 acres) of the most perfectly-sited vineyards in the appellation. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre in this Châteauneuf-du-Pape grown in these vineyards produce wines that are generous, powerful, tannic and concentrated. The blend has includes a small proportion of Counoise, Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Cinsault to achieve the perfect, elegant balance in the wine.

More than half of their vineyards are planted on “diluvium alpin” soil on the plateaus of the appellation at elevations above 500 feet. At these elevations, they are especially subjected to the harsh Mistral winds of the region, which can often be over 40 miles per hour, driving away any excess humidity. The vineyards are filled with galets, famous round stones and pebbles, that were spread over time throughout the highest plain, absorbing heat from the bright Mediterrean sun.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Palate

    Tight and focused tannins on the palate. Very elegant and refined finish.
  • Nose

    Intense nose with red fruit aromas combined with complex smokiness. Blackberry, mulberry preserves, ripe cherry, candied violet, licorice pastille and lavender
  • Finish

    Piercing smoke and toast, clove, cardamom and black pepper, oak tones, garrigue, exotic spices

"Decadent layers of blackberry and mulberry preserves are pierced by smoke and toast in this unctuous, glossy red. It's a warming, piquant sip marked by clove, cardamom and black pepper, but balanced freshly too. Tannins are fine and feathery. Oak tones are a bit flashy in youth but should meld beautifully through 2031." - Anna Lee C. Iijima Wine Enthusiast 95 points


Origins

Established in 1344, Château Mont Redon is one of the oldest wine-producing estates in France and the largest single property in Châteauneuf-du-Pape with the most perfectly sited vineyards. They have been considered by Robert Parker, some of the greatest Châteauneuf-du-Pape he has ever tasted.
