CépageMondeuse is a variety of wine typically Savoyard.
Beautiful grapes that grow close together, long. Dark blue colour, almost black when the fruit is mature. The juicy pulp melts in the mouth, tasting sugar with a slight astringency.
Production du Cépage8500 HL. It's produced in 150 Hectares. It's 8 percent of Savoyard vineyard.
TerroirArgilo-Calcaire, southeast exposure.
VinificationManual harvest, pneumatic pressing.
Clarification vinification heat regulated at 20°, fermentation during three weeks.
When the alcoholic fermentation is over, malolactic fermentation starts: the malic acid is degraded into lactic acid, it allows to lawer the wine acidity and avoid fermentation in the bottle.
Thanks to this you have round wines with a long finish in palate and you can keep them longer.
Aire de ProductionThe chosen territory for Mondeuse is Arbin. On the side of the mountain "La Savoyarde", the hillsides are facing south. These old vineyards give Mondeuse. Partly (30 percent) aged in oak barrels, it's slightly woody with delicate tannins.
