Overview of the Wine
This beautiful estate and vineyard are located in the heart of Provence. The estate combines a best of the people, traditions and nature to consistently produce great wine. The Chateau Montaud vines are grown on long schist and sandstone terraces in the heart of the Maures Mountains. The chateau is situated on the site of an old Roman "villa" the remains were found during the restructuring of the vineyard. For three generations, the Ravel family have carried on their traditions. Their iconic Chateau Montaud rosé is packaged in a Provencal bottle specially made more than 40 years ago for the Ravel family.
Chateau Montaud is home to Vignobles Francois Ravel, a family-owned company founded in 1964. Little by little, the family created a viticultural estate that today is one of the most important in the Provence region. The Domaine’s Permian soils are poor and thus require the vines to take root deeply; this allows them to benefit from the full characteristics of the land. Production adheres to the principles of low yields, no irrigation, and harvest at the point of perfect ripeness, advanced technology, and noble traditions.

Review by Ian Blackburn - 90 Points
Rosé is the wine of the moment. We need to find wines that deliver great rewards without a great amount of money, wines that do not slow us down in the heat of Summer and bond with the all important meals you're making at home. Rosé over-delivers for the money and we have come again and again with great Rosé values this, and here is our biggest and best Rosé deal yet! This is a killer bottle of sizzling Summer success and we recommend it by the case! 2017 is again, right on time - still fresh, and perhaps even better than it was last year when it was introduced. The nose is bright cherry and yellow stone fruit, nice richness with a long, clean, authentic finish - A blend of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache and Tibouren...a class and 1/2 the price!
