Mon Rouge

Rode wijn

De Mon Rouge verwijst naar de Mont Rouge, of Rodeberg, die heel belangrijk is voor Entre-Deux-Monts. Zonder de Rodeberg, zat EDM niet tussen twee bergen. De berg kreeg z'n naam door het feit dat er in de bodem veel ijzerzandsteen aanwezig is. Het ijzer in de grond reageert met het regenwater en krijgt een roestig rode kleur af. Dat ijzerzandsteen is een veelbepalende factor van de bodem waar de wijnranken op staan.
