Tasting Notes

Aromas are slightly spicy with earth, black currant, pepper, and floral notes. This wine is absolutely delicious and seamless in texture. Ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit with touches of garrigue and rounded tannins are pure pleasure in this Rhône blend. This can play nicely at your Thanksgiving table, as it will with duck or wild game. Enjoy with herb-inflected roasted vegetables or gravy too.

Try with roasted game hens in a red wine reduction or with a myriad of Mediterranean dishes.  This is also a lovely picnic wine with crusty breads and some soft cheeses such as fontina, brie, or havarti.  Vegetarians will enjoy dishes such as spinach and tomato soufflé, braised endive salad or polenta with grilled vegetables.

 

Montagnette is produced at Les Vignerons D'Estezargues, a small Southern Rhone Cooperative located in the Gard Departement, west of Villeneuve-Les-Avignon. They are a unique co-op because each vineyard is farmed sustainably and the wines are bottled separately for each estate. The yields in the vineyards are not high because the soil is very arid in this particular region. The co-op's commitment to environmentally-respectful viticulture and to non-interventionist winemaking made it possible to follow the "Terra Vitis" charter. Denis Deschamps, the winemaker now in charge, began to work here in 2002, and continues to work along this approach: no cultured yeasts, no filtration, no fining, no enzymes, no SO2 on the grapes at harvest (or during the vinification), only a little bit for bottling.
