Château Mont-Redon Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2006
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.
