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.
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.
