Côtes du Rhône 2010

Medium-dark purple, rich dark fruits, terrific CdR, balanced, medium-long finish, a lot of this best juice in this wine now goes into the Montfaucon Lirac (not Baron Louis), at the early stage of hitting its maturity. — 8 days ago

Very young and fresh still, this tasted like a 5-year-old wine and needs significant additional cellaring, long finish, great potential!! — 3 years ago

Monsieur Le Baron de Montfaucon Vin de Pays du Gard Red Rhone Blend 2010

MAGNUM! This is an unique blend of all the permitted grapes in Chateauneuf (red and white), named after Rudi’s grandfather, that plays well above its humble Vin de Pays du Gard, complex, rich, structured, needs 5+ more years, great wine!!

(Disclosure — Rudi is a friend through my brother, who imports his wines, but the front label shows the 12th Century chateau on the Rhône across from Chateauneuf, just south of the Lirac appellation!!)

@Ira Schwartz it is, while just a Vin de Pays, it’s honestly the best wine they make (it’s only made in the best years, great elegance)!

@Doug Powers Sounds like it can also age.

Comtesse Madeleine Blanc Côtes du Rhône Lirac White Rhone Blend 2018

Nice blend for the price.

Barrel-fermented and aged in mostly older oak, the 2018 Lirac Blanc Comtesse Madeleine is a blend of 40% Marsanne, 35% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Picpoul.

An 88-acre estate, Château de Montfaucon sits just across the Rhône River from the esteemed vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is owned and operated by Rodolphe de Pins, a UC Davis graduate and former member of the winemaking staff at Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe.
