Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Is named after the two towers which protect the entry to the château. This red fruit-oriented wine is made from young vines, completely destemmed and allowed to macerate for 10 days, then aged in cuvées to maintain the freshness, which opens the door to some surprisingly complex flavors. It is a pleasant and straightforward wine for everyday cuisine.

This wine is good and typical Rhone. Very good with Japanese food like Teriyaki, Yakitori, or Unagi which using soy-sauce based sweet sauce. These type of sauce are very good matching with good Rhone wine.

Great Rhone wine. The blend of several Rhone varietals all from older vines adds some nice complexity. Good structure, came back to it after a few hours, still really nice.

90 Points - Wine Spectator "Very solid, with a juicy core of blackberry and plum woven with cocoa and pastis hints. The smoky, spicy finish has nice length. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvdre and Counoise. Drink now through 2010." 4,580 cases made. -Jun 15, 2009winemaker's notes:Still muscular, with blackberry and black currant fruit, black tea, graphite and espresso notes that all meld together nicely on the lengthy finish. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Carignan, Counoise & Mourvdre.
