2020 Montfrin la Tour Organic Rouge, Coteaux du Pont du Gard

£12.25 inc. VAT

Excellent southern Rhone style red – juicy with subtle spice and a twist of cassis.

Château de Montfrin sits just above where the Rivers Gard and Rhone meet, bang in between Avignon and Nîmes. They own vineyards within Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Costières de Nîmes and Les Coteaux de Pont du Gard. The latter region has hot summers, strong sea breezes alternating with the powerful Mistral that can create torrential rainfall, so this is not a place for the fainthearted agriculturist. However Château de Montfrin seem to work some magic here and create wines of great balance that express the terroir magnificently. All their vineyards here are certified organic and the wines are 100% vegan.

60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Almost a classic Rhône blend but with that twist of Cabernet giving it a touch of dark berry fruit. This is also fermented and aged in stainless steel so the fruit here is very pure and youthful.

Very appealing aromas of blackberry and liquorice and a little soft spice, this gains weight nicely after time in the glass. Like the white this was even better the following day and is a great little red for a cheeky lunchtime glass.
