1998 Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Côtes du Rhône (1.5L)

SKU #1056409

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!

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.
