1998 Château de Montfaucon Côtes du Rhône
After several months of anticipation, I am eager to report that our latest shipment of wine from Château de Montfaucon has arrived and is in stock! This 88-acre estate sits just across the Rhône river from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This venerable Rhone estate is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe (in Châteauneuf-du-Pape). Over the years, Château de Montfaucon has developed a HUGE following amongst both our staff and customers. And while it is also 'good news' when the latest releases hit our shelves, this time around Rodolphe sent along limited quantities of several older vintages, direct from the Chateau's cellar. For those of you who have not been squirreling away bottles of the CDR or Baron Louis over the past decade, now is your opportunity to try a bottle or two of 'bottle-aged' Montfaucon!
