Our oenologists' opinion
Notes of spices and candied black fruits are released by this dark garnet-colored wine that amazes in mouth with its great suppleness and its amazing personality. Indeed, after a supple attack appear a plump mouth and the same aromas perceptible at nose. These aromas expresses themselves with persistency before a frank finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
The name of Château Mont-Redon comes from the Latin "Montem Retundum" which means "Mont Rond", referring to a small round hill in the locality.
Domain and appellation
Chateau Mont-RedonLocated on the highest terrace of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, between Orange and Avignon, Château Mont-Redon was bought in 1923 by Henri Plantin. This huge area consists of 3 vineyards: 100 hectares of vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 32 in Lirac and 22 in Côtes du Rhône.
