2012 Château de Montfaucon "Vin de Monsieur Le Baron de Montfaucon" Vin de Pays du Gard

SKU #1367466 91 points Wine Spectator

 Dark and slightly gutsy, but still alluring, with lots of smoldering charcoal and roasted alder notes framing a core of dark plum, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Offers a thick coat of tobacco and fresh humus on the finish, revealing a light echo of bay at the very end. Distinctive. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Clairette. (JM)  (11/2016)

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
