K&L Notes

Just across the Rhône river from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this 88-acre 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. Montfaucon crafts their Côtes du Rhône to express the intense fruit characteristics of the appellation, blending to achieve harmony and balance.

    This is one of my favorite Cotes du Rhones year after year. I anticipate its arrival because it always has the most pleasing red and black fruit flavors and garrigue aromas. Perfect with roast chicken and potatoes.

    Rhone red season doesn't really begin for me until the new vintage of Montfaucon arrives. Always held back a little longer to give the fruit, spice and structure to fully integrate, the new 2015 is smoking! Beautiful raspberry and dried blueberry flavors are harmonious with the peppery spices and crushed herbs that make Cotes-du-Rhone fruit so fun and accessible. The new Cotes-du-Rhone offers such vivid regional flavors, that it's no surprise that it is getting even more critical attention this year. Perfect for your backyard barbecues, weekday meals or for bringing over to friends' houses for immediate consumption. Plenty of fruit intensity and structure allows you to forget a handful of bottles in your collection to rediscover in a few years as well.

    I’ve tasted and reviewed a lot of Cotes-du-Rhone, far too many to count. Yet, the Montfaucon, without doubt, is my year-in-year-out winner without any question. Super-dependable and always delicious, it over-delivers every single time I pop a bottle. Beautifully aromatic with notes of strawberry and a hint of garrigue. Bright on the palate with warm fruit and just a hint of tannin texture on the tail end. There is no question you will love this wine. It is really just that charming. I’ve never taken home a mixed case of reds without it.
