Chateau Mont Redon Châteauneuf Du Pape 2018. We love Grenache based wines at Bullion Cellars . In fact if I could drink only one wine and its blends, it would be Grenache, but then that would just be silly. But if I had too!!!!! They have had a string of great vintages, continuing with this 2018 vintage.
Chateau Mont Redon is one of the largest estates in this world famous appellation, offering what we believe, is the best value / quality proposition. When Reserve styles wines can reach $500, this wine at $79 is just incredible value and a great way to experience one of the most famous wines on the planet. This is a wine for you best friends at your next dinner party, of for your next mini celebration, or as a little reward for a job well done.
Brilliant ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, spice cake, licorice and potpourri on a highly perfumed nose. This wine is not huge like a Barossa Shiraz, but it offers incredible length, complexity and structure.
Decant the wine for 20 minutes and simply enjoy.
With almost 100 hectares under vine, the majority of Mont-Redon’s vineyards are located in the appellations most sought after area, the high plateau which is covered in the large round pudding stones which Châteauneuf is so famous for. This remarkable property is in fact a single vineyard. There has been considerable investment at Mont-Redon over the past twelve years. The entire winery has been completely renewed and is now climate controlled. Rows of oak barriques have replaced the old large foudres of yester-year, and large temperature controlled stainless steel vats now line the walls, resulting in wines of freshness and finesse in both red and white wines.
