Winemaker's Notes:

Its colour is usually dark purple in the first years, slowly evolving towards a deep, intense ruby. Over time, the opulent fruit aromas are enhanced with spicy and smoky notes which, in turn,evolve into a rounded and delicate bouquet. Similarly, on the palate, the powerful young fruit acquire rich, toasty flavours which develop into a wine of considerable finesse and elegance. At every stage of this maturation, the tannin structure remains present and complex, which ensures that our wines have enormous ageing potential.

About Chateau Mont Redon:

Established in 1344, Chateau Mt. Redon is one of the oldest wine-producing estates in France and the largest single property in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The vineyards are planted in the 13 grape varieties of the region and are covered with large, smooth stones which reflect the sun warmth by day and residual heat by night into the maturing grapes.
