  • Winemaker Notes Vin de Madame la Comtesse comes from an exceptional Clairette vineyard which was planted before 1870 on Mount Peguierol hillside, overlooking the river Rhone near Montfaucon. It is a terraced vineyard of rolled pebbles dating from the Villafranchian age, a million years ago. Its rare intensity and its complexity makes this 100% Clairette a gastronomic "grand vin". The historic label, created in 1829 for winemaker Rudolphe de Pins' ancestor, the Baron of Montfaucon, represents the old feudal castle before its restoration. It is undoubtedly the oldest label in the Rhone Valley.
  • Tasting Notes A lovely, lush, creamy feel, with toasted macadamia nut notes weaving around the orange sabayon, and lemon curd flavors. Very flattering, with a twinge of bitter orange and light verbena keeping it honest.
