K&L Notes

The new Baron de Montfaucon label may confuse some but these are still the same great wines produced by our friends at Chateau de Montfaucon. The Baron label represents the relationship between the le Pin family and a few key growers whose fruit they wanted to work with. Combining these resources and overseeing all the vineyard practices, winemaker Rudi le Pin delivers the same quality and unique style. The Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a blend of 70% Clairette, 20% Viognier and 10% Grenache Blanc.

    Another knock-out from one of my favorite direct imports. Wine has been made at the Chateau de Montfaucon since 1520, and that kind of legacy results in superbly crafted blends year after year. This Cotes du Rhone blanc is no exception. The mostly Clairette blend has a viscous tropical fruitiness with a nice floral undertone from the Viognier. Great acid and mineral keep it fresh on the finish which is precise and lingering. One of the very best deals in white in the store. ​

    Another fantastic wine from our friends at Montfaucon! This lovely Cote du Rhone Blanc is composed mostly of very old-vine Clairette, which lends a lovely texture and strength to the wine. On the whole, though, this wine is light, playful and full of elegant fruit and floral notes. This would be a great wine to sip on its own, or in combination with lighter appetizers.
