Domaine Charles Gonnet 2017 MondeuseIn Fine Spirits
From the Savoie region of eastern France, comes this old vine Mondeuse, an ancient indigenous variety. For a cool region, the result in this vintage is surprisingly rich and generous. Aromas of plum, anise, lavender and black cherry promise a Rhone-familiar experience. The palate is balanced with a stony bite of wild herb-laced scrubland and pepper. This is a complex, serious wine with chalky, granitic mouthfeel and fine length. Pair with comforting game stews.
