Mont-Rendon first vines date back to Roman times planted 2,000 years ago. However, the vineyards were officially recognized in 1344, when it was known as Mourredon, part of the Pope’s land. In the 17th century, the property was acquired by the d’Astier family, who passed it down to the Mathieu family. In 1923, the property was managed by Henri Plantin, a contemporary of the legendary Baron Pierre Le Roy (both were fundamental for the creation of the CDP appellation). Today, Pierre Fabre and Yann Abeille, Henri Plantin’s descendants, are in charge of managing the estate. Mont-Redon is one of the largest estates in CDP with 100 hectares of vines averaging 45 years of age. Usually, 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre with various amounts of other allowable grape varieties.
