2019 Domaine Chevallier Bernard Jongieux Rouge Mondeuse
Located in the foothills of the Alps, the Savoie represents one of the last, great undiscovered wine regions of France. The vineyards are amongst widely dispersed, small communities, clustered together in the narrow alpine valleys, each seemingly with its own specialities in terms of grape varieties it elects (or is allowed) to grow.
Mondeuse is a typical Savoyard grape (it is one of the grandparents of Syrah). This variety produces tannic wines with a crimson red colour, robust, rich in aromas of red fruits and spices and a juicy acidity.
