Tasting 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 Télégraphe. Montfaucon crafts their Côtes du Rhône to express the intense fruit characteristics of the appellation, blending to achieve harmony and balance. The Lirac Rose is an hommage to its neighbor Tavel, showing the same verve and richness that accompanies that hallowed rose producing region.

    I have to agree with Sharon below: this isn’t a light, delicate sipper like many rosés from southern France. Montfaucon’s 2019 Lirac Rose is fuller-bodied, intensely perfumed, rich in structure, and has that “wow” factor that draws you in with each sip. Treat yourself to aromas of fresh strawberries, bubblegum, white peach, and that addicting scent of pavement after the first rain of the season. On the palate lies a brief (but powerful) burst of acidity, followed by notes of blood orange, stewed cranberries, and white tea. This will be a great pairing for lighter summer meals, however I would dare even encourage this as a Thanksgving pre-dinner aperitif if we have it in stock come holiday time.

    A blend of primarily Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvedre, this rose from the Lirac appellation in southern Rhone has more structure and flavor than the delicately pale roses of Provence that tend to be favored due to their light hue. Don't let the darker color of this one make you hesitant - this is definitely dry. Think of it as a very light red, served cold. Because of its complexity and richness,I enjoyed it even more when partnered with food. Try it with a simple sheet pan chicken, potatoes and a fresh spinach salad.
