  • Winemaker Notes The actual aging cellar was built 500 years ago and used as a winery until 1936. The Baron Louis and his father, Eugene, were making and selling their wine in the late 1820s under the name of “Vin de Monsieur le Baron de Montfaucon". Finding the original label created in 1829 for the Baron Eugene de Montfaucon (at the time Mayor of Avignon) gave birth to this project to develop a unique timeless wine. This label is likely the oldest the Rhône Valley. It represents the old feudal
    castle before it's restoration. It is the spirit of that era that inspired us to undertake this quest for finesse, elegance, and pleasure.
  • Tasting Notes This wine, unique in its style, is all in finesse, fruit, flower and elegance. It is a unique timeless wine for wine lovers, connoisseurs and collectors.
  • Press Wine Advocate: vintage 2009 (91 pts)
  • Vinification Vin de Monsieur le Baron is an exceptional blend of fifteen Rhône varietals harvested by hand, co-fermented
    and aged 12 months in French oak barriques. The wine is racked into barrels straight after fermentation, as they did in the old days.
