The vines of Château de Montfaucon are found on the right bank of the Rhône, directly across the water from Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe. The surprise is the bright, fresh character of their wines that could remind one more of Burgundy than the southern Rhône. Here, the 2017 white, Comtesse Madeleine, has a perfumed, minty, spicy aroma, with intense lemony zip on the palate. This is a broad, creamy mouthful, with a clean, refreshing and long-flavoured finish.
