Domaine de l'Idylle Mondeuse Clos Idylle 2014

Savoie, FranceThe Tiollier family has been working the alpine terroir of Savoie since 1840. Scads of cracked pink peppercorn leads this fresh and floral mondeuse. Mondeuse is an ancient variety of the area, and one of the parents to syrah, so the pepperiness is certainly inherent and in the genes. Half whole cluster, this spent six months in vat, preserving the fresh, earnest, Alpine mondeuse flavours. Blueberries, plums and forest berries are perfumed with purple florals, seasoned with dried herbs and carried with fine, downy tannins. A gentle, lighter-bodied Alpine red to chill and chug now with charcuterie.Tasted: 02 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 private wine shops Producer: Domaine de l'IdylleDistributors: Altus Wines
