10 year old Chateauneuf-du-Pape for about the same price as current release!
Château Mont-Redon will be familiar to those who know and love Châteauneuf-du-Pape being well recognized as the owners of some of the most highly regarded vineyard sites in the appellation. The superb quality of its vineyards has been recognized throughout history and prior to the adaptation of the appellation controlee system it was one of the few “Grand cru’s” in the region (together with Chateau Rayas).
'Inky purple. Pure, enticing aromas of strawberry, raspberry, five-spice powder and lavender expand with air. Seamless and sweet, with pinot-like weight and texture to the fresh red fruit flavors and a late note of Asian spices. This is already quite attractive and will drink well on release.'
