Wine Advocate 91 points - Situated on the Rhone River, this historical estate’s top wine (one of the more interesting efforts readers will encounter) is the 2010 Vin de Mr. le Baron de Montfaucon, a cuvee that is made exactly as it was 200 or so years ago from 15 different grapes! This is why it is only entitled to a Vin de Pays du Gard designation. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as abundant notes of flowers, ink, spring flowers, cassis and kirsch intermixed with a hint of forest floor. Pure, elegant and distinctive, I have no idea how long it will last, but I suspect 5-10 years is possible.  (Oct 2012)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Offers gorgeous dark, juicy fruit, with mixed plum, boysenberry and blackberry notes intertwined, laced with a mouthwatering jolt of licorice and alluring dashes of spice that flitter through the creamy finish. This has lovely mouthfeel and subtle persistence. Drink now through 2016.óJ.M. (Aug 8 2012)

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.

Montfaucon is located opposite to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhone 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).
