A wine of terroir. This Lirac from Mont Redon shows all the classic florals, red fruits and aromatic prettiness you'd expect from this Southern Rhone sub-region where Grenache and Shiraz (Syrah) reign supreme. Excellent density and nicely well-rounded. It's good value too! - 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.
