2015 Domaine Dupasquier Vin de Savoie Mondeuse
Mondeuse | Dry medium-bodied red | Smoked meats, even West Texas BBQ!
Given their genetic linkage, we often use Mondeuse to illustrate what Syrah (especially Côte-Rôtie) used to be like – sweetly floral, with a hint of pepper, and a stubborn streak of minerality. Sadly, it’s become almost impossible to find Syrahs made in that style nowadays, but we’re thankful we still have this lovely Mondeuse. It’s slightly sappier than Syrah, of course, and there’s a bit more precision from the chalk terroir.
