The first vineyards of Mont-Redon date from Roman times. They were planted at the shelter from the mistral at the foot of a hill that gave the name of Mont-Redon our property (Latin montem retundum, the "Round Mountain" and Provencal mourredon). Driven by a passion for their craft, always looking for land for grape quality fit, the descendants of Henri Plantin continue the investigative work and enlarge the field. Today, Chateau Mont-Redon covers 174 hectares in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, including 100 hectares planted with vines. In 1980, operations expanded with the purchase of a domain in Côtes-du-Rhone and in 1997, another in Lirac. For four generations, the heart of the vineyards over the centuries, our daily enriches its expertise in respect of its quality requirements.
A focused wine, with enough reserve of fruit to keep it going for a while. Light rosemary, black cherry and fruit aromas follow through on the palate, and smoky berry, toast and chocolate notes emerge on the finish. Start drinking now, but will improve with age.
A magnificient summer, one of the hottest and driest on record. The North and South were equally successful - the wines were initially rich and concentrated with hard tannins. If 1978, as it were, set the wheels in motion, 1983 sped the Rhône on its way. The reds are still drinking well.
