The 2014 is the first vintage of Chateauneuf du Pape produced by Montfaucon. A single hectare of mostly old vine grenache yields a deliciously balanced and refined CDP that shows the integrity of Rudi des Pins winemaking and honest representation of the region. A stellar bargain for sure.
Dark red fruit, tobacco and medium tannins. The wine is lively and tangy, with mixed red and dark berry fruit, violet and lavender notes supported by a long, graphite-tinged finish.
