A Côtes du Rhône classic, the La Ferme du Mont Première is made up of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre grape varieties. It’s elegant and full of finesse, with an ABV of 14%.
Bright red in color, this bold and rounded wine gives aromas of wild herbs, red berries, and spice. On the palate, you get elegance and freshness, with notes of sweet fruit and soft tannins.
The La Ferme du Mont Première Côtes du Rhône pairs very well with hearty dishes, like grilled or barbecued meats, steak, lamb chops, or venison. If you’re not into red meat, it will also work wonderfully with eggplant parmesan, or duck dishes.
Stephane Vedeau has made a name for himself as a virtuoso of wine. He founded La Ferme du Mont, which moved to their present headquarters of Valres in 2010. He comes from a family of winemakers, and the passion that runs through his blood is very apparent. A truly gifted winemaker, he and his wines are universally praised by critics like Robert Parker. He pays exceptional attention to the vineyard, making sure to use the most natural ways of management possible. It was in 2011 that La Ferme du Mont began cultivating their grapes without any pesticides or fertilizers, just pure, 100% biodynamic practices. And they have continued with that practice since.
