The base wine, the 2018 Chteauneuf Du Pape has a healthy ruby/purple color to go with its classic Southern Rhne notes of ripe red and black fruits, lots of earthy garrigue, some ground pepper, and a touch of minerality. All this carries over to the palate, where the wine is medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a great mid-palate and sweet tannins.

The base wine, the 2018 Chteauneuf Du Pape has a healthy ruby/purple color to go with its classic Southern Rhne notes of ripe red and black fruits, lots of earthy garrigue, some ground pepper, and a touch of minerality. All this carries over to the palate, where the wine is medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a great mid-palate and sweet tannins. It certainly shows the upfront, charming style of the vintage, but I love its mid-palate, its beautifully balanced, and is just a seriously classy wine from this estate, which deserves more recognition today. Enjoy bottles any time over the coming 15 years or more.

Wine Spectator 93
Dark and winey, with waves of ganache, steeped plum, blackberry reduction and melted black licorice rolling through. The finish is scored with warm earth and smoldering tobacco notes, showing ample grip for the cellar. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvdre, Counoise, Muscardin, Vaccarse and Cinsault. Best from 2023 through 2036

Chteau Mont-Redon owns 100 hectares of the most perfectly-sited vineyards in Chteauneuf-du-Pape.
More than half of their vineyards are planted on diluvium alpin soil on the highest Mistral (dry southern winds) blown plateaus of the appellation at elevations above 500 feet. Chteauneuf-du-Pape is famous for its galets or round, heat absorbing pebbles that have been shaped and polished over thousands of years by the Rhne River and spread over time along the appellations highest plains. In some portions of the vineyard this layer can exceed 2 meters in depth forcing the vines roots deep in search of the layer of red clay that lies beneath. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvdre grown in these conditions produce wines that are generous, powerful, tannic and concentrated.

The remaining vineyards sit in two distinct soils, the first being primarily sand that was created when the Rhne River shifted course bringing with it the smallest parts of the soil, which broke into smaller pieces still (sand). These soils increases the aromatic character of Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvdre. Urgonian Limestone soils make up the remaining vineyards. Soils here are shallower and give excellent results with the white varieties, rich with aromas of white and citrus fruits.
About Mont Redon
Chateau Mont-Redon has been in the Abeille and Fabre families for four generations, with its vineyard omnipresent for centuries. The first vines found at Mont-Redon date back to Roman times, 2,000 years ago. They were planted at the bottom of the hill that gave its name to the Mont-Redon property.

In 1344, "Mourredon", part of the Pope's land holdings, was officially recognized as a vineyard. In the middle of the 18th Century, the nobleman Joseph Ignace d'Astier, a lawyer with a doctorate in Law from Avignon, acquired Mont-Redon. The Mathieu family, descendants of the Astiers, then took ownership.

Anselme Mathieu, who called himself the "Marquis of Mont-Redon", ran the domaine until his mother, Claire Mathieu, died, causing the inheritance to be split up amongst her children. At the same time, in 1866, phylloxera ravaged the Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards.

In 1923, Henri Plantin purchased Mont-Redon. He worked on grouping together as many parcels as possible, and had the foresight to plant on the wide open plateau, with its rocky soil and forest patches, never before cultivated, that looks over the Château.

Today, Henri Plantin's descendants, the Abeille and Fabre families, continue to search out the best pieces of land with which to ensure the domaine's growth.
