Quick Overview

Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of red fruit preserves, potpourri and herbs, with a spicy topnote. Juicy and precise, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of smoky minerality. Showing impressive finesse and a light touch for the vintage. Very elegant, with a strikingly long, floral-dominated finish and gentle tannins.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Details

Mont-Redon’s estate vineyard has three distinct soil types that are ideal for growing a variety of grapes. Grenache and Syrah are planted to the rocky summit, while Mourvèdre and Cinsault vines thrive in the sandy soil at the sheltered base. At harvest, the fruit was handpicked, sorted and destemmed. Each variety is fermented separately. The grapes were macerated and punched down in tanks for two to three weeks to ensure maximum extraction of fine tannins and color. Half of the wine was transferred to 228-liter Burgundian barrels after malolactic fermentation while the other half remained in vats. The final blend was crafted only from the best wines. Total oak aging was 12 months on 50% of the wine, with an additional 6 months in bottle before release. From October to September, rainfall was 23% higher than average, but summer rainfall ranked among the lowest levels since 1871. As in 2010, this vintage's quality and characteristics are due to the climatic conditions: a rainy springtime and a dry summer enabled the grapes to be healthy, with an interesting tannic structure. On the other hand, cool nights allowed the synthesis of anthocyanins and polyphenols but delayed the start of harvest. Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rouge: The highly aromatic nose evidences a remarkable maturity of grapes with black fruit character combined to noble vanilla and toasted notes. The dense but refined mid palate shows great depth and balance along with very well integrated oak that finishes with ripe black cherry and blueberry aromas. An outstanding cellaring vintage!
