ABOUT THIS WINE
This estate can trace its origins back to 1334. At that time the land belonged to a papal castle and Mont Redon paid taxes to the Church. Since 1923 the estate has remained in the Abeille and Fabre families. They have 174 hectares in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. Their white is generally top in the appellation, with their red not far behind. There was an expansion in 1980 with 30 hectares being purchased in the Côtes du Rhône appellation, followed by 20 hectares in the Lirac appellation in 1987. Recent vintages have been consistently excellent.
