Winemaker's Notes:

Château Mont-Redon's 200 acres of vineyards occupy Châteauneuf-du-Pape's most extraordinary microclimates, and are among few to include all three soils types of the region. On its plateau's summit, planted in Grenache and Syrah, is a deep layer of large, round stones over a clay subsoil which deeply root the vine and also act as a natural incubator, radiating heat absorbed during the day into the grapes by night. At the plateau's foot, sandy soils support Mourvèdre and Cinsault vines; these lend richness and aroma to complete the structure of the Grenache and Syrah.

Château Mont-Redon expresses its "terroir" in a wine vinified to exhibit deep, clean, intense fruit, ripe, balanced tannins and approachability without sacrifice of longevity. Its dense, purple-red color suggests the aromatic nose of ripe black fruits offset by notes of spice, leather, coffee and pepper which are confirmed on the palate. The rich, intense fruit flavors are set in a full tannic structure at once firm and ripe, carrying into a warm, sustained and complex finish.

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.
