"Chateau Mont-Redon occupies one of the most exceptional vineyards areas of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, with a spectrum of soils unique in the region. The thirteen Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation varieties reach perfect ripeness and concentration on its high, stony plateau, yielding a wine great depth and longevity, with an adapted aging in oak barrels, during 10 to 12 months. The spicy, fragrant red fruit bouquet, intense, plummy flavors and firm tannic structure end in a long, balanced finish."

"Showing similar to last year, the 2016 Châteauneuf Du Pape offers a classic bouquet of black raspberries, garrigue, and spice box, with a touch of minerality. It’s more rounded, fleshy, and layered than the more concentrated 2017, has plenty of upfront appeal, and will keep for 15+ years."

Smoke, black cherry, tar and oil – the complexity is already showing good development, although the fruit character of the 2017 seems more opulent. Savoury and firm with a long, compressed finish which has good structural balance but still seems a good way from its peak. (RH)
- Richard Hemming MW, Jancis Robinson
"Intense raspberry and black currant compote notes form the core, which is dense in feel, with melted licorice, singed anise and warm fruitcake flavors filling in around the fruit. A solid, racy graphite edge supports all the elements through the long, grippy finish. Best from 2020 through 2035."
