The style of Château Mont-Redon Côtes-du-Rhône is one expressive of its "terroir," and vinified to exhibit deep, clean, intense fruit, soft, balanced tannins and early approachability. Deep violet red in color, the wine shows aromas of dark berries and raspberries which are confirmed on the full, succulent palate. These are offset by slight grilled notes and nuances of licorice, which carry into the persistent finish.
I have hesitated to write this review . . . because I'd hate to see this wine sell out! For the price, this is as good a Cotes du Rhone as you can find, well balanced with good tannins. Subtle attack, excellent mouth feel, and lingering complex finish. An excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of food, ranging from pasta to steaks, even a cheese course. I have also visited this winery, and bought an number of their CDRs as well as their Chateauneuf du Pape. Reliably first rate. I hope the folks at wine.com continue to stock wines from this excellent Chateauneuf du Pape producer.
