Cotes-du-Rhone A.C.

The Cotes du Rhône is a classic of Montfaucon. The focus is to express with finesse and elegance the intense fruit characteristics that Côtes du Rhône terroir can offer.

The wine is a blend of typical Rhône grape varieties Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. It has been fermented and aged in concrete tanks only, without any influence from oak barrels. At tasting, the wine reveals beautiful red fruit aromas: cherries, blackcurrant, and raspberries with violets and spices. You can feel the importance of the blend in the freshness, roundness and purity of this wine, which also makes it easy to access, a true pleasure to enjoy with a variety of red and white meat dishes and even barbecue.

The basic 2010 Cotes du Rhone is excellent. It exhibits very good ripeness and lots of minerality along with floral, red and dark fruit notes. Rating 88 - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (OCT/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

We can only describe the 2010 vintage as exceptional: the quantity of sunshine and rain fall, the hygienic condition of the vineyards and the maturity of grapes were all at optimum.

Grape Varieties

50 % Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan. Wine from old vines (over 40 years) with selection of parcels that have a maximum yield of 38hl/ha.


The notes in the nose are full of in- tense red fruit - raspberries, cherries and blackcurrant - with hints of peppery and floral notes of violet.


The mouthfeel is suave and round finishing with silky tannins. The floral aromas give an aerien dimension to the wine.

Food Matching

This wine is very versatile, it will easily accompany poultry and meat dishes. If you keep some bottles in your cellar, you will be surprised by the aging potential of the wine ; it developpes aromas and finesse that are amazingly similar to some Burgundy wines.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Montfaucon is located opposite to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhône River. Our vineyards are spread out between Montfaucon and the two neighbouring towns, Roquemaure and St Genies de Comolas.

The original 18 hectares (1995) of vineyards have grown to 45 hectares by planting new vineyards and by buying old ones. Our vines are up to 90 years old with an average age of 40 years. All the vineyards are farmed at low yields (between 25 to 42 hl/ha).

One of the strengths of Montfaucon is the diversity of soils and exposure (mainly calcareous pebbelstone on silty sandy soil, soil with clay and sandy soil) combined with a large selection of Rhône grape varieties (Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Counoise, Viognier, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Picpoul). This diversity is an essential component of the quality, and helps gain an insight into the complexity of Montfaucon wines.

Two millennia of wine history in the Southern Rhône Valley has naturally created a selection of grape varietals well adapted to the region and its terroir: soil, landscape and climate. I am very attached to the idea that we must conserve this natural heritage that is a true asset to our region. This evolution leads to well balanced and harmonious wines with a true identity of Rhône.

I have a natural approach to viticulture and to winemaking; the grape is a fruit, thus the final product should always express the flavours of the fruit. We follow the principals of sustainable agriculture, but in essence our work is organic agriculture: no insecticides are applied and we only use natural fertilizers (blend of sheep manure and marc compost). We leave the native grasses to grow on the vineyards and control its growth by mowing regularly and ploughing when needed (if the season is too dry). This is a way to keep the soil as whole as possible and to maintain our low yields.
