Hands down the best value Chateauneuf-du-Pape you will find in the country. It is more elegant and refined than most, with a real clarity to the fruit and a fine-ness to the structure. This wine, like so many other vintages of it will stand the test of time (I recently tried a 1994 and it was spectacular with heaps of life left in it). This is the kind of CNDP that excites the senses and will impress even the biggest of wine nerds. - Chris L
With almost 100 hectares under vine, the majority of Mont-Redon's vineyards are located in the appellations most favoured area, the high plateau which is covered in the large round pudding stones that Châteauneuf is so well known for. This remarkable property is in fact a single vineyard.There has been considerable investment at Mont-Redon over the past twelve years. The entire winery has been completely renewed and is now climate controlled. Rows of oak barriques have replaced the old large foudres of yester-year, and large temperature controlled stainless steel vats now line the walls, resulting in wines of freshness and finesse in both red and white wines. More recently optical sorting machines at harvest time have resulted in wines of great precision. Mont-Redon is a candidate for the most improved producer and the best value producer of the Southern Rhone.
