Chateau Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2019

  • $67.00*

55% Grenache blanc, 25% Clairette, 10% Roussanne, 10% Bourboulenc and Picpoul fermented cool and kept on lees for 5 month, no malolactic. Mont-Redon have long been regarded as one of the best producers of white Châteauneuf-du-Pape (and are also one the largest) owning some of the best limestone terroir that suits some of the white varieties so perfectly.
'A fresh, racy version, with a mix of lemon pith, verbena, quinine, honeysuckle and white peach notes blitzing through. Very fresh through the finish. Drink now for its brightness or let it broaden a little with cellaring. Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. Drink now through 2026.' 93 points, Wine Spectator, December 2021.
'The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc from Château Mont-Redon is composed of its customary blend of grenache blanc, roussanne, picpoul, clairette and bourboulenc; the wine comes in at fourteen percent octane in this vintage. It offers up a lovely bouquet of lemon, crab apple, chalky soil tones, white flowers and orange peel. On the palate the wine is bright, fullbodied, focused and complex, with a good core, fine chalky soil signature and very nice framing acids keeping the wine light on its feet on the long finish. This is lovely. 2020-2030+.' 90 points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar, January 2021.
