VIRTUAL TASTING - MONT REDON CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE WITH PIERRE FABRE
Mont Redon is a very special property, they are not only the largest wine producer in Chateauneuf du Pape, they also have one of the longest histories of any estate in the Southern Rhone. Grapes have been planted here since Roman times, over 2000 years ago. The estate has been officially recognised as a vineyard since 1344. Managing director Pierre Fabre will be joining us via ZOOM to present some wonderful wines from all of their regions, his family has owned the estate since 1923. We will be tasting many great wines, including their $200+ new premium CDP release, as well as a very rare 30 year old bottle, and a very special spirit to finish. We will be tasting; St Max Provence Rose 2019, Chateau Mont Redon Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2018, Côtes du Rhône Reserve Rouge 2018, Gigondas 2018, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2017, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2016, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'Le Plateau' 2016, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 1989. Vieux Marc de Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Your ticket includes 50ml sample bottles of all the wines. To ensure these samples reach you in safe and optimum condition, we will be using the Coravin system to check for cork taint. The tasting bottles will then be filled under a veil of argon gas, to minimise contact with air and prevent oxidation. The team will be using applicable protective practises when preparing the samples. They will then be dispatched to you a day or two before the tasting on Thursday evening. These sample bottles are designed for short term storage to get them to you for the tasting, not for keeping in your cellar. Details will be included explaining how to set up your computer / phone / iPad to join the tasting which will be conducted via Zoom.
