The property is one of the biggest in Chateauneuf du Pape. The first record of the name of the chateau dates back to 1334: "Mourredon". The latin name muntem retundum (the round mountain) became in provencal Mourredon and later Mont Redon.
Anselme Mathieu (1828-1895), the wellknown poet who together the author  Frédéric Mistral founded le Félibrige to keep the provençal language alive lived for a period of his life at Mont Redon when the place was owned by his mother Claire Mathieu. He called himself Marquis de Mont-Redon. His mother died around 1866, when phylloxéra destroyed all vineyards in the village

The owners today are the 3th generation at the property since 1923. That year a forefather of the two families Henri Plantin acquiered the place mostly covering woodland. At that time the vineyards covered only 2,5 ha. Plantin changed the woods into vineyards and bought more vineyards.
Two daughters of Plantin married an Abeille and a Fabre and in this way the two family names appeared on the domain.
Today the domain covers 174 ha of which 100 ha are vineyards of AOC Chteauneuf du Pape.
In 1980 30 ha. in AOC Cotes du Rhone were purchased and in 1997 a property in Roquemaure - the Lirac appellation - with 21 ha.
In 2019 a domain in Cairanne were purchased, so from vintage 2019 red and white Cairanne will probably be made.
