2017 Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf-Du-Pape
2017 Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Chateau Mont-Redon occupies one of the most exceptional vineyards areas of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, with a spectrum of soils unique in the region. The thirteen Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation varieties reach perfect ripeness and concentration on its high, stony plateau, yielding a wine great depth and longevity, with an adapted aging in oak barrels, during 10 to 12 months. The spicy, fragrant red fruit bouquet, intense, plummy flavors and firm tannic structure end in a long, balanced finish.
Intense nose with red fruit aromas combined with complex smokiness. Tight and focused tannins on the palate. Enjoyable now but requires a few years of bottle maturation to fully integrate aging notes. Very elegant and refined finish.
Blend: 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise, Muscardin, Vaccarèse, Cinsault
