Situated on the left bank of the Rhône between Orange and Avignon, the Mont-Redon vineyards feature large, rounded stones known locally as galets. These stones retain some of the intense daytime heat of the southern sun and then slowly disperse it to the vines during the night. The Mistral wind blows away any humidity, ensuring excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of vines. The grapes were handpicked and 100% destemmed, followed by a 12- to 15-day maceration to achieve good tannic structure. After malolactic fermentation, half the wine was matured in vats and half in barrels for 12 months until bottling.
This Reverve Cotes du Rhone is produced with the same care as the Abeille and Fabre families estate grown wine. This wine is fruity yet dry with an unmistakable flavor and aroma of strawberries and citrus fruit. Perfect as an aperitif and with all meals served out of doors.
The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Réserve Mont-Redon is about as charming and gulpable as they come. Made from 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, it’s loaded with notes of strawberries, cherries, dried flowers and garrigue, and this medium-bodied beauty is ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years (if not longer).
