Chateau Mont Redon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 1996
Rhone White Blends from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France
Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a unique and unusual white wine of particular seductiveness. The pale straw color leads to fragrant white fruit and floral aromas on the nose, with nuances of acacia and citrus. On the palate, a perfect balance between richness and acidity underscores an intense, full, ripe fruit depth marrying exotic fruits to suggestions of grapefruit and anise from blockage of the malolactic fermentation. The voluminous finish is clean and lingering, ending on an elegant floral note.
Chateau Mont RedonView all wine
Established in 1344, Chateau Mt. Redon is one of the oldest wine-producing estates in France and the largest single property in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The vineyards are planted in the 13 grape varieties of the region and are covered with large, smooth stones which reflect the sun warmth by day and residual heat by night into the maturing grapes.
