Wine Advocate 91 points - A field blend of 15 different grape varieties, all harvested at the same time and co-fermented (unusual by any standard) is the 2009 Vin de Mr. Baron. Deep ruby/purple, with notes of flowers, cranberry, boysenberry, black currant, red currant, licorice and some earth and spice, the wine is medium-bodied, classy and refined for what is basically a Cotes du Rhone. It has a long finish and should drink nicely for 3-4 years. (Oct 2011)

Wine maker notes
When I found this old magnificent label from the 1820s used by my great, great, grand father, Baron Eugene de Montfaucon, I realised all the history that was behind Montfaucon wines. In order to make a wine in the spirit of those days nearly 200 years ago, we fermented together all the grapes we have on the estate, 15 in total. The wine is racked straight into barrels after fermentation, as they did in the old days. This wine, unique in its style, is all in finesse, fruit, flower and elegance. It is in its own world, out of this time. I am sure it will seduce wine lovers, connoisseurs and collectors.

Producer
Montfaucon is located opposite to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhone River. Our vineyards are spread out between Montfaucon and the two neighbouring towns, Roquemaure and St Genies de Comolas. The original 18 hectares (1995) of vineyards have grown to 45 hectares by planting new vineyards and by buying old ones. Our vines are up to 90 years old with an average age of 40 years. All the vineyards are farmed at low yields (between 25 to 42 hl/ha).
