A field blend of 15 different grape varieties, all harvested at the same time and co-fermented (unusual by any standard) is the 2009 Vin de Mr. Baron. Deep ruby/purple, with notes of flowers, cranberry, boysenberry, black currant, red currant, licorice and some earth and spice, the wine is medium-bodied, classy and refined for what is basically a Cotes du Rhone. It has a long finish and should drink nicely for 3-4 years.

Wine maker notes
When I found this old magnificent label from the 1820s used by my great, great, grand father, Baron Eugene de Montfaucon, I realised all the history that was behind Montfaucon wines. In order to make a wine in the spirit of those days nearly 200 years ago, we fermented together all the grapes we have on the estate, 15 in total. The wine is racked straight into barrels after fermentation, as they did in the old days. This wine, unique in its style, is all in finesse, fruit, flower and elegance. It is in its own world, out of this time. I am sure it will seduce wine lovers, connoisseurs and collectors.
