2009 Château de Montfaucon "Comtesse Madeleine" Côtes du Rhône Blanc

SKU #1062781

In addition to producing delicious Rhone reds, Chateau de Montfaucon releases a limited amount of a stunning Côtes du Rhône blanc that sells out every year. This top cuvee is named in honor of winemaker and owner Rodolphe de Pins grandmother, who managed the estate for over 60 years and was a huge force in the development of the estate. Marsanne, Viognier, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Picpoul are picked by hand in 20 kg cases and pressed directly. After the juice has settled naturally for ten to twenty hours, it is racked into oak barrels where the wine ferments naturally without temperature control. The wine ages eight months in barrels before bottling. Enjoy this elegant white on its own or with grilled snapper, roast chicken or layererd vegetable gratin. 13% abv.

- 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.

- 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.
