Côtes du Rhône White Baron de Montfaucon 2016 / Score: 92

Issue Nov 30, 2017

Tasting Note : Gorgeous, with a creamy core of yellow apple, white peach and mirabelle plum notes, flanked by racy verbena and honeysuckle details, then pierced by a flash of blanched almond on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 475 cases made.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Baron de Montfaucon 2015 / Score: 91

Issue Nov 30, 2017
