Château de Montfaucon "Baron Louis" Lirac 2015 France

Five Rhône Valley grapes are blended to paint the masterpiece that is Baron Louis. These grapes come from the oldest, 100-year old vines on the Montfaucon estate where Baron Louis measures up pound for pound with the more expensive wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Not only does it deliver all the intensity, complexity and style of its famous neighbor, it comes in at less than half the price of most Châteauneufs. The grapes for Baron Louis are sourced from the estate vineyards in the Lirac AOC - one of the recognized 13 crus in the Rhône Valley. Balanced from start to finish, it's a rich and deep blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvèdre. After 18 months of aging in small oak barrels, full-bodied flavors of dark cherry and blackberry mingle with hints of mocha, spice and leather. The soft undertones of oak are a plus, not a distraction, as the pure fruit continues to shine through. With every vintage I marvel at Rudi de Pins' fine talent as his wine making prowess continues to evolve toward perfection. There's a reason he's the master of Lirac. Rudi has undying passion and he leads by example which translates to top quality wine at a hell of a price!
