Terroir: Château Mont-Redon owns 25 hectares of vines in the Côtes du Rhône appellation. Around the towns of Orange and Roquemaure, their Côtes du Rhône vines are planted on stony, limestone-clay plains. The generous sun encourages the grapes to reveal all their best qualities on these terroirs. They also purchase premium wines from the top growers in the region to make wines under the label “Réserve Mont-Redon”.
Vinification: Grapes are harvested by hand in mid September and transferred to the winery where they are sorted and destemmed. Maceration and fermentation occurs at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks over a period of three weeks followed by brief ageing large vats.
An aromatic white of medium body. Round, and well balanced acidity with a long finish.

Hints of crushed stone and sea air give the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Reserve Mont-Redon Blanc an invigorating aroma. It's not an overly fruit-driven wine but one that relies on acidity and texture for interest. There's enough pear and pineapple to round out the mouthfeel but that briny note continues through the wine, emerging once again on the finish to add a mouthwatering quality. Drink it through the end of 2018.
