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.
Flo says of the 2013 (September 2018) Notes of sherbert immediately hit the palette when drinking this wine rounding out into notes of magnolia and a small amount hazelnut. This is a fresh, dry and easy drinking wine

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.
