$11.99

Located in the heart of the Rhône Valley, Château Montfaucon produces beautifully structured wines with elegance and finesse. The winery is located in an 11th century castle that began producing wine in 1520. After many years selling grapes to a cooperative, Rodolphe de Pins took on the task of rebuilding the winery. His experiences at Henschke and Vieux Telegraphe inspired a transition at the estate using techniques that involve concrete tanks for fermentation with co-fermentation of each varietal.
