Mondeuse 2017 - Adrien Vacher, Vin de savoie

Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

Mondeuse is one of my favourite grape varieties and it is from Savoie. It’s with Mondeuse that the greatest red wines of the region are elaborated. I like this juicy sensation that it creates, well balanced by firm tannins. Moreover, it has a lot of acidity, which underlines the crispy side of the red berries aromas. Eventually, good Mondeuses display some enjoyable peppery aromas as it is the case here. 

 

Terroir

Located where the slopes start to get a little more sloping but still at the beginning of the mountains, this vineyard is not far from Chambéry, Savoie’s current capital city. The vines are planted on very stony soils that give to the wine its typical minerality.

lecepage Grape variety

Mondeuse is, as most grape variety grown in Savoie, relatively rare outside of the Alps. Its perfect balance between tannin and acidity make it quite easy to drink it relatively young but also allow to keep it up to 5 years in the cellar where ageing will give it more ripe flavours. Some expert say that Mondeuse is halfway between Burgundy’s Pinot Noir and Northern Rhône’s Syrah.

lemillesime Vintage

Frost stroke several times in 2017 and local winemakers lost around 20% of the harvest. Fortunately, the fact that vine stocks had less grape to carry when the summer eventually came made it easier for those to concentrate the grapes in sugar therefore delivering a very good vintage.  

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Mondeuse is known to pair well with charcurterie and cheeses, so it’s sold mainly in the Alps. Moreover, the fact that it can age is a good thing in areas where it’s hard to make the same amount of wine every year. However, it is also now grown in Australia and in the United-States on very different terroirs. Maybe those experiments are the beginning of the rise of Mondeuse!
