Yellow gold in color, the wine instantly focuses you on its floral character made even better by its nuances of orange liqueur, cut grass, banana, and Meyer lemon rind. The concentrated palate is cut, sharp and mineral driven, with freshness, lift, definition and layers of sweet, ripe, pure, white and yellow fruits. The wine is produced from a blend of about 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Clairette. Drink from 2024-2032.

Flowers and red fruits are what you initially notice. Medium-bodied, soft and polished with a supple texture to the red fruits on the palate, there is a nice sweetness and purity here, along with a dash of cocoa in the endnote that will be delicious to enjoy on release. The majority of the blend is old vine Grenache and Syrah with a liberal dose of Mourvedre and various other allowable grape varieties. Drink from 2022-2031.

Showing a nice depth of color, the fruit is equally dark here with a focus on plums and black cherries. On the palate, the wine is rich, lush, round and full-bodied with a nice soft texture on the mid-palate and in the spicy, peppery, dark red berry and spice-filled finish. Mont Redon ages extremely well, so if you are not in a hurry, let it rest for 5-7 or more years. The wine averages 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and various assorted red grape varietals. Drink from 2026 - 2040

Forward and already a pleasure to drink, the wine is all about its kirsch, spicy dark cherry, thyme and earthy garrigue core on the nose and palate. Elegantly styled, with plenty of sweet, ripe, red fruits in the finish, you should be able to enjoy this over the next 12-15 years with ease.

Round, fresh, bright, forward, early drinking, medium bodied, kirsch and herb filled, peppery charmer. Good character but not quite enough volume.

Light in color, medium bodied in weight, with a fresh, bright, crisp, spicy, red berry fruit and pepper character. This is not a wine for aging.

Not a lot of flash. Instead you discover peppery black raspberries, garrigue, earth and cherries, with concentrated layers of ripe, juicy, spicy, red plums, soft textures and good freshness.

This medium bodied, soft, forward wine is already serving up its cherry, pepper, herb and spicy charms. This is not a wine for long term aging. It will probably be best on the young side.

Fully mature, this elegant, soft, spicy, kirsch filled wine does not want further aging. Medium bodied, earthy, and with a red, berry character, there is no reason not to be popping cork on this today.

Tea in color, this is clearly past its prime. The fruit has mostly faded away. Traces of red berries remain in the light, tart finish.

Severely fading, but not completely faded away, if you took a deep look below all the garrigue, underbrush, herbs, tobacco and spice, there were the last few remaining vestiges of peppery red pit fruits and greenery. Not a bad wine per se, just tired and ready to get going on its forever nap. If you have a bottle, drink it sooner than later before the last drops of fruit are lost.

Drinkable, but well past its prime, the wine focuses on spices, earth and tobacco, with glimpses of red fruits found now and again. Medium-bodied, bright and with an earthy finish, this is not a wine to hold as it is probaby decades past its prime.
