Montfaucon

Châteauneuf du Pape & Lirac crus

Dating back to the 11th Century, the Château de Montfaucon is located opposite to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhône River. One of the strengths of Montfaucon is the diversity of soils (mostly located in two of the best Crus of Southern Rhône : Lirac and Châteauneuf du Pape) and exposure combined with a large selection of Rhône grape varieties. This diversity is an essential component of the quality, and helps gain an insight into the complexity of Montfaucon wines.

« The spirit I search for in Montfaucon wines is elegance and finesse. I like wines that are complex, but also enjoyable and easy to drink; like the wines of Burgundy, but working with the Southern Rhône varietals and climate. All my work is to find harmony and balance in the wine. » Rodolphe de Pins
