Château Mont-Redon will be familiar to those who know and love Châteauneuf-du-Pape. They are well recognised as the owners of one of the most highly regarded vineyard sites in the appellation and cover an area of almost 100ha of vines within Châteauneuf du Pape. The majority of Mont-Redon’s vineyards are located in the appellation’s most favoured area, the high plateau which is covered in the large round Galets that Châteauneuf is so well known for. The superb quality of its vineyards has been recognized throughout history and prior to the adaptation of the appellation controlee system it was one of the few ‘Grand Crus’ in the region (together with Chateau Rayas).

The 2017 is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 8% Mourvedre and 2% Cinsault, Counoise, Muscardin and Vaccarese. The grapes are all hand harvested, fully de-stemmed and aged half in French barriques and half in vats. Quantity is down nearly half in 2017 due to bad weather at flowering drastically reducing the yield of Grenache meaning higher percentages than usual for other varieties resulting in darker more intense wines. 

Tasting Note:
This is a polished wine, if ever there was one. The colour is a deep glistening magenta with a pronounced and complex bouquet leaping out of the glass. Think ripe red cherries and dark berries, rose petal and violets with scents of chocolate, garrigue and smoky minerals intertwined with exotic spices. There is impressive depth and energy on the palate with a real juicy acidity and soft sweet tannins on the finish. This is real impressive stuff from a classic CNDP producer.

This is a Dry, Full bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Long finish.
