Cotes du Rhone
80% Grenache 10% Syrah 10% Carignan
The Montfrin Côtes du Rhône is produced from fruit grown at the outermost edge of the appellation. Like all of the wines from Château de Montfrin, the grapes come exclusively from their own 120 hectares of organic vines around the town of Montfrin, vinified on-site using native yeasts. Their Côtes du Rhône has an unusually high proportion of Grenache blended with Syrah and a touch of Carignan, which gives a little twist to a classic wine.
