The Wine


Mondeuse Blanche is a rarity but it has had a huge impact. This is the ancestor of no less than both Syrah and Viognier and it survived just up the side valleys that eventually merge into the Rhône.

There are only between 5 and 10 hectares left (thankfully this is increasing again).

It went out of fashion because in lazy hands, Mondeuse can make very sharp wine (the hint is in some of its alternative names which are "aigre" - i.e. sour).

Of course, in the right hands it's got delightful potential and we only buy from the right hands, like here at Philippe Grisard.

Why we have it:

It's a rare Alpine grape made beautifully into a crisp clean wine. How could we not have it?

Why you should pick this wine:

You like crystalline and crisp. Or you're exploring rare ancient grapes. Or you want to try the parent of Syrah and puzzle over how it happened.

What to expect:

Surprisingly exotic but very crisp.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve around 10°C, chilled but not too chilled.
Classic white wine matches really. But I love it with trout or arctic char, or even perch if you can get it. Especially pan fried with lemon, garlic, parsley and toasted hazelnut.

In Depth:

Mondeuse Blanche is not related to the red Mondeuse, it's just the habit that people had to use the same name for their local wines.

Tasting Notes

The wine is floral at first, then hazelnuts and rich plum flavours come out.
