100% Mondeuse Noir.
From a parcel of 80 year old Mondeuse in Apremont this alpine red is at once delicious and complex. High toned and delicate with deep savory woodsy notes of cranberry and pine. Only 40 or so cases make their way into the US each vintage.
Critic Tasting Notes: "This Mondeuse from Romain Chamiot has the stuffing to develop very well over four days of drinking. Beginning with bright red fruits on the nose, like cranberries and small, crisp strawberries, it softens to become a more generous display of cherries and plump raspberries, with accents of flowers and savory herbs. The intense acidity on the palate on the first night become less severe, but don't disappear all together - thankfully. Brisk and pleasant, refreshing and cool, the flavors take on some pepper with air, and the tannic foundation of the wine is able to shine through the vibrant Alpine fruit.
One of the more serious Mondeuse I've had in terms of structure, regardless of price-point. It'll age over the next 3-5 years. Another great one, Romain!" - David Hatzopoulos
