One of my favorite roses tasted at a recent staff tasting.Chateau De Montfaucon has a history of producing excellent red and white wines that are delicious and well worth the price. This is the first rose that we have seen and it is wonderful. It has a deep pink color and is juicy and round. It is dry but has nice fruit flavors, producing a great rose.

Our consummate faith in the extraordinary wines of Chateau de Montfaucon just hit a new dazzle with the introduction of this high-toned rose, a harmonious medley of Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Carignan and Clairette. Reminiscent in hue and style of the finest wines of nearby Tavel, this fleshy, complex rose is suffused with voluminous flavors of cherry, wild strawberry and garrigue. Pair with an abundant platter of buttery, garlicky grilled shrimp for a delicious meal.
Top Value!

The inaugural offering - this Lirac Rose was one of our biggest hits amongst the field of roses in our staff training. Drifting stylistically towards Tavel, this is a touch richer on the palate then a comparable Provence rose. Red cherry, light strawberry and lush texture. This is a great new offering from one of our most favored producers.

This is the first time that Montfaucon has done a rosé and they definitely nailed it! It shows a fuller bodied structure with raspberry and cherry notes with some nice spice and vibrancy. Think Tavel style but bigger! Bottoms up!

Here is a great and affordable choice for lovers of the deep and powerful rose' coming from the Tavel region of the Southern Rhone. The substantial middle of wild raspberry, ripe black cherry and spice is full, focused and mouth filling. Is that a whisper of tannin on the firm, mineral laced finish? This is delicious on its own but would be a perfect match for grilled salmon or surf & turf.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
