This looks fantastic. Leaning into the warmth of the vintage, the nose tends towards fairly dark, ripe fruit with plenty of lush dark plum, black cherry and hints of strawberry. Mont Redon picks earlier than many of its CdP compatriots and this certainly shows with ample freshness, dried herbs and a mineral tinge lending excellent support for the plush fruit. Drinking superbly now but you'll be glad down the track if you can stash a few. Jeremy Muller, FWC.
‘Limpid ruby-red. Mineral-tinged aromas of raspberry, cherry liqueur, garrigue and exotic spices show excellent clarity and take on a minerally nuance as the wine opens up. At once rich and lively in style, offering penetrating red berry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors and a touch of candied lavender. Shows superb definition and finishes smooth, spicy and impressively long, leaving behind a bright mineral note.’ (93-95) points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020.
