The first vines found at Mont-Redon date back to Roman times. They were planted at the bottom of the hill, sheltered from the Mistral wind, that gave its name to the Mont-Redon property. In 1344, “Mourredon”, part of the Pope’s land holdings, was officially recognized as a vineyard. In 1923, Henri Plantin took over Château Mont-Redon and its 2.5 hectares of vines spread out across the appellation. He worked on grouping together as many parcels as possible, and had the foresight to plant on the wide open plateau, with its rocky soil and forest patches, never before cultivated, that looks over the Château. Alive with the same passion for their work, always in quest of the highest quality terroirs and the grape varieties that are best adapted to them, Henri Plantin’s descendants continue to search out the best pieces of land with which to ensure the domaine’s growth. For four generations, in the middle of their vines and through the centuries, the family has continually enhanced its wine-making knowledge, always in pursuit of greater quality. All of the grapes at Mont-Redon are handpicked to enhance this point.    

Intense nose with red fruit aromas combined with complex smokiness. Tight and focused tannins on the palate. Enjoyable now but requires a few years of bottle maturation to fully integrate aging notes. Very elegant and refined finish.

Moving to the 2019s from bottle, beautifully pure notes of cassis and black cherries as well as new leather, candied orange, and violets emerge from the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape, a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant 2019 that has perfectly ripe yet substantial tannins. Do your best to hide bottles for 4-5 years (or more), and it will evolve for two decades in cold cellars.

The best "regular" Mont Redon I can recall tasting, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape is wonderfully full-bodied yet silky and harmonious, while the nose offers gentle garrigue notes and purple raspberries. The tannins on the finish are supple, and the flavors add hints of cola-like spice to the minty-fresh finish. It's an assemblage of 60% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre and 1% other permitted varieties, aged in a 50-50 mix of barrels and tanks. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.
