Sweet, ripe crushed red berry fruit flavors and aromas are offset by bright, vibrant notes of black pepper and a suggestion of leather in this wine, and are supported by supple, medium-bodied tannins.

Situated on the left bank of the Rhone between Orange and Avignon, the Mont-Redon vineyards feature large, rounded stones known locally as galets. These stones retain some of the intense daytime heat of the southern sun and then slowly disperse it to the vines during the night. The Mistral wind blows away any humidity, ensuring excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of vines. The grapes are handpicked and destemmed, followed by maceration to achieve good tannic structure. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is matured in vats and oak barrels until bottling.
Wine maker notes
The fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled vats at 30° to 32°C (86° to 89°F) over eight to ten days. A single cuvée is assembled and aged in large oak "foudres," or vats, for a period of four to six months prior to egg white fining and bottling. 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.

Producer
Mont-Redon’s extraordinary situation, at Chateauneuf-du-Pape’s highest elevation of 360 feet, is one of very few to include all three soil types found in the appellation. On the plateau’s summit are the classic alpine diluvium soils consisting of a deep layer of large, round stones over a clay subsoil that draws the vine roots far into the earth to find a source of water. The stones also act as a natural incubator, absorbing the intense Mediterranean sun during the day and radiating heat at night into the grapes. Planted in Grenache and Syrah, these soils lend structure and backbone to the fruit. At the foot of the plateau, sheltered sandy soils support the Mourvedre and Cinsault vines, which in this environment develop richness and intense aromatic qualities. The plateau’s slopes are composed of limestone pebbles that lend finesse and fruitiness to the white Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Roussane and Picpoul vines to which they are planted. The vines of the Chateauneuf estate average 45 years of age. The Cotes-du-Rhone vineyard, also lying on Urgonian limestone, is planted principally in Grenache with smaller proportions of Cinsault and Syrah.
