You don't often get Châteauneuf for the price of Gigondas or Vacqueyras, but Le Petit Mont got here just in time to offer great value for the upcoming cool weather. Clos Mont-Olivet traces its history back to 1547, and over the last three decades the Sabon brothers have elevated their 70 acre property to new heights of quality. Relatively small compared to some other Châteauneuf producers, the Sabons like to keep winemaking traditional with partial destemming of grapes, fermenting in concrete vats, and aging in large foudres. Le Petit Mont is a blend of younger vine Grenache (95%) and Syrah from a combination of vineyard that are combined to produce a softer, early-drinking cuvee. We recommend buying by the case for about $25 per bottle, and drinking it from now through 2018. We only got 2 cases. Act fast! Flavor Profile: Fuller medium-bodied, dry. "A ripe, supple and easygoing effort, the 2011 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Petit Mont offers up loads of ripe cherry and blackberry fruit, olive, leafy herbs and fennel to go with a medium-bodied, up-front profile on the palate."
