- The Wine
We have three Mondeuse from three different winemakers, each expressing different aspects of this fascinating variety.
This one from Philippe Grisard is all about the spicy fruit character. Berries and violets.
Ben says of the 2012 (March 2018): A lovely ruby red with a depth of colour that sits beyond Pinot Noir but is not too dark. The nose is mainly red berries with redcurrant and elderberry dominating. Above them there is a lovely blend of 'chutney' spices including nutmeg, clove, juniper and carroway.
As with so many wines from Savoie, this is an elegant and smooth wine in the mouth with the redcurrant taking centre stage. The spices and other berries appear in the finish which is long enough to appreciate them all.
