  • Goedhuis, November 2010

    Due to its Côte Blonde location, Stéphane incorporates some Viognier in his Fortis cuvée. This aromatic white variety adds more fragrance and an ethereal touch. Slightly more spicy than the Papy, the 2009 Fortis delivers an opulent sweet core of fruit with aromatic smoke and earthy ntoes. Velvety tannins caress the palate while its freshness adds lift. Just delicious.

    Some Viognier here. Luscious and scented. Very polished. Very pure indeed. Extremely expressive. But young and there is still a little oak influence.

The dynamic and young Stéphane Montez marks the 10th generation of vignerons in the Montez family. Rising out of stony and rugged, brush covered hills, his family domaine is a pocket of Mediterranean bliss tucked away above the village of Chavanay with superbly steep, rocky vineyards overlooking some of the most spectacular vistas in the valley. From these sheer slopes, Stéphane produces his renowned St. Josephs, perfumed Condrieu and exceptional Côte Rôties from vineyards comprised of decomposed granite soils. He believes, like many people in the new order of Rhône winemaking, in the reductive style of vinification in order to naturally extract and preserve all the fresh aromatics from his grapes. Oak ageing depends on the concentration of the wine and the grape. With his masterful technique, he ensures that it never dominates but adds warmth and texture to his handcrafted wines.Read less

Region

Côte Rôtie

Only a red wine appellation, Côte Rôtie is the most northern of all Rhône appellations and is produced mostly from Syrah, although Viognier may contribute up to 20% of the blend. Its terroir is divided into two categories. Côte Brune's soil is comprised of iron-entrenched granite giving thesoil a rich red-brown colour. As a result, it creates wine of notable power and concentration that usually needs time in the cellar to soften and develop. Heading south down the slope towards Condrieu, one encounters Côte Blonde, an area comprised of decomposed schist and mica that is lighter in colour and tends to produce elegantly styled wine for earlier consumption (most of the area's Viognier is grown here). Many traditional producers of Côte Rôtie feel that their best wines are a blend of the two.
