Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2018

Château Mont-Redon


Terroir: Château Mont-Redon owns 100 hectares of the most perfectly-sited vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Urgonian Limestone soils make up the of these vineyards. Soils here are shallower and give excellent results with the white varieties, rich with aromas of white and citrus fruits.

Vinification: Grapes are selected and harvested by hand and transported to the winery in small containers. Bunches are destemmed and vinified in temperature controlled tanks. To keep the wines’ natural acidity (low in the South of France), which provides the white wines with freshness and balance, no malolactic fermentation takes place. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape white wines are aged on their lees in tank to emphasize their aromas and roundness.

Additional Information

The white Châteauneuf-du-Pape is attractive when young within 2 or 3 years following the harvest, if you are looking for the wines to be fragrant, fruity and elegant. Lovers of more mature white wines should wait another five years or more until our wines develop their secondary aromas: honey, white truffle and reminiscent of acacia.
