Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc 2010 750ml

Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc

Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a unique and unusual white wine of particular seductiveness. The pale straw color leads to fragrant white fruit and floral aromas on the nose, with nuances of acacia and citrus. On the palate, a perfect balance between richness and acidity underscores an intense, full, ripe fruit depth marrying exotic fruits to suggestions of grapefruit and anise from blockage of the malolactic fermentation. The voluminous finish is clean and lingering, ending on an elegant floral note.

This ripe, full fruited blend of classic white Rhône grapes shows a distinct bouquet of fresh apples and tree fruit blossoms with bold, supple fruit flavors on the palate and a structure of moderate acidic balance.

Because the grapes of the white vines matures at different rates, they must be gathered in stages. Particular care is required in timing of harvest and subsequent vinification in this hot climate to preserve the freshness and vigor of the fruit. A hand harvested is carried out in three separate passes through the vineyard. Grenache and Roussane mature first, followed by Clairette and Picpoul, and finally by Bourboulenc. Each variety is pressed separately and the must allowed to settle for 30 hours at 12°C (54°F), although some experimentation is underway with ”macération pelliculaire,” or skin contact, for Roussane and Clairette. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel over the period of a month at 15° to 16°C (59° to 62°F), with a slight elevation in temperature at the end of fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is blocked to preserve the crispness and acidity of the wine. The blend is assembled, followed by a light filtration, and the finished wine bottled in January.
