Chateau Mont-Redon Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2015

Overview

Terroir: Château Mont-Redon owns 100 hectares of the most perfectly-sited vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Urgonian Limestone soils make up the of these vineyards. Soils here are shallower and give excellent results with the white varieties, rich with aromas of white and citrus fruits.

Vinification: Grapes are selected and harvested by hand and transported to the winery in small containers. Bunches are destemmed and vinified in temperature controlled tanks. To keep the wines’ natural acidity (low in the South of France), which provides the white wines with freshness and balance, no malolactic fermentation takes place. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape white wines are aged on their lees in tank to emphasize their aromas and roundness.

Additional Details edit

The white Châteauneuf-du-Pape is attractive when young within 2 or 3 years following the harvest, if you are looking for the wines to be fragrant, fruity and elegant. Lovers of more mature white wines should wait another five years or more until our wines develop their secondary aromas: honey, white truffle and reminiscent of acacia.

Crisp lemon flavors and white-blossom notes lend an invigorating feel to this fresh, fruity white wine. It's light on its feet but silky and expansive on the palate. The finish is moderately long and just a hint warming.

Key lime, pear and green apple notes form the core here, while light fennel, honeysuckle and quinine accents ripple through the bright, unadorned finish. Drink now through 2022.

Pale, green-hued gold. Penetrating, sharply focused aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits are joined by hints of chalky minerals, iodine and jasmine. Juicy and deeply concentrated in the mouth, offering mineral-laced pear nectar and Meyer lemon flavors that show superb clarity and drive. The floral note comes back strong on the incisive finish, which lingers with outstanding focus and tenacity. I was reminded of a serious Chablis. Incidentally, the 2014 rendition of this wine, which I tasted alongside this 2015, showed an eerie Riesling-meets-Hunter-Valley-Smillon character, displaying intense mineral, kerosene, quinine and citrus pith notes and wonderful clarity and mineral cut. It's awfully interesting and complex now, but it has the backbone and nerve to ensure a long, positive aging curve as well.
