  • Winemaker Notes The Comtesse Madeleine inherited the Montfaucon castle from her great-uncle Baron Louis de Montfaucon. Madeleine was Rodolphe de Pins’ grandmother and managed the estate for over 60 years. For this reason the cuvee has been named in her honour. Cuvee Comtesse Madeleine is an elegant blend of five Rhone varieties. The wine is well adapted to be served with fish, dishes of fatty fish that can be generously seasoned like ‘bouillabaisse’; the structure of the wine ideally complements these dishes. Also goes well with refined cuisine, for example lobster with saffron.
  • Tasting Notes Elegant nose of orange blossoms with hints of pineapple, pear, and gingerbread. A sensation of volume on the palate. The fragrances of citrus blend with the calcareous notes giving a mineral dimension.
