La Ferme du Mont Premier Cote AOP Cotes du Rhone 2015

The Wine

“Exceptional vintage : smoothness, maturity, volume on the palate, fluidity in a hyper-concentration. La Ferme du Mont have centred on the keeping of it burgundy spirit in the winemaking to restitute in the final the airy touch needed by this historic vintage to delight
the connoisseurs. This wine is natural and unfiltered which is why a depot may form; it is the guarantee of our craftsman and respectful work.”

Tasting Notes

“The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Premiere Côte, which is based on 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of blueberries, strawberries, spring flowers and hints of garrigue. Drink this soft, medium-bodied, totally charming Côtes du Rhône on release and over the following 3-4 years.” (88-90points) Jeb Dunnuck eRobertparker.com

The vineyard contains two distinct soil types: broken limestone and a bed of red clay and Jurassic limestone.
