Château de Montfrin


Château de Montfrin has been in Jean-René de Fleurieu’s family since 1925 when his grandfather purchased the château and the vineyards. Jean-René took over in 2004 and today is supported by his daughter Aurore and Estate Manager Benjamin Beguin in the operation of the winery and its 100 hectares of organically farmed vineyards. In addition to vineyards, the estate also has olive groves. Looking after the land is a love affair for Jean-René and Benjamin. This is where they grew up, established roots and feel at home. The vineyards are spread out and are located in four different appellations: Pont du Gard, Costières de Nîmes, Côtes du Rhône, and Côtes du Rhône Villages. The vines grow in hallowed farmland made up of contrasting terrain, from the vast silty soils of the plains along the majestic Rhône to the sunny hillside of its banks and the stony plateaus of its now abandoned riverbeds.

Montfrin comes from the Latin Mons Fremens, “mountain of wild animals” fleeing the rising floods from the rivers below. As Jean-René says: “Today, other animals live here. Some of them even grow vines and olive trees”.

Château de Montfrin Rouge Costières de Nîmes · Profile

A very harmonious blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre from a very underrated appellation. Costières de Nîmes can provide wonderfully balanced, medium-bodied wines of great structure and depth. This wine is a good example. Wonderful aromas of dark fruit and violets are complemented by hints of spice and eucalyptus. The palate is well rounded and dense, leading into a long, pleasing finish backed up by ripe tannins.
