We have been cultivating the Mont-Redon vineyard for four generations now, with most respect for its unique «terroir ». Powered with the same passion for delicate and deep wines, our family looks forward to producing red and white Rhone valley appellations focusing on elegance, finesse and balance which do express all together specificities of our soils and climate through our know-how. Our aim giving pleasure to gastronomes.
Nose: earthy/barnyard, black olives, smoky wood, red fruit/plums, becoming more meaty/rich with air. Palate: lively acid, red fruit, black olives, dried bitter herbs (thyme, rosemary), plums, becoming more rich/meaty with air. Drying tannins. Moderately long on palate. Initially, the nose seemed to deliver more than the palate, but improved with air.

I would have to say a pretty solid effort out of Chateau Mont Redon. This is the first time i have ever had any of thier wines. I found the nose to be a little smoky...a touch of black pepper and a little funky. And behind all of this was deliscious strawberry notes from the grenache. Def an old world style with the fruit in the background. Super light color almost Pinot noir like. Light to medium bodied with solid structure and sneaky tannins. Somewhat of a weak finish however which was a little disappointing.
