The Story: La Ferme du Mont in the Southern Rhône boasts a mosaic of vineyards, now owned and vinified by Stéphane Vedeau. Formerly a soccer player in Paris, Stéphane has spent 15 years making award-winning wines in the Languedoc. Stéphane arrived in the Rhone Valley in 2000, creating La Ferme du Mont in the Southern Rhone where he continues to produce wines with freshness and soul using native yeasts and biodynamic methods.Why You’ll Love Me: This sublime blend is strong in color, with shades of dark carmine red. The complex nose reveals Mediterranean and sub-Mediterranean spices, candied red fruit and black soil. Opulent, but also with a very fresh attack on the palate, it then shows tight but very fine tannins before a finish that is both elegant and persistent.
