Big, deep purple fruit, on the nose, foresty, mint, mineral, elegant, silly great nose, juicy and so clean with huge purple fruit flavors and amazing purity and huge huge minerals. Tastes so mineral and rocky, complex and so delicious with terrific acidity and freshness. So long and so fresh. One of the most mineral driven Mondeuse I’ve ever had. Inner mouth aromas. Amazing freshness and minerality is the tale here with all the that juicy crackling dark Mondeuse fruit. Structure for long aging. — 8 days ago
Stunning nose. Such a laser like sharp expression of Altesse. Huge green apple, mineral, hay, wild flowers, white flowers, super expressive, steely and mineral, almost Muscadet like, dense and intense with super terrific acidity and freshness. Long and laser like. Iodine and so so mineral on the finish. Inner mouth mineral aromas. Terrific structure. Pure and concentrated. Big structure and ageability. Needs air. Likely an hour. — 8 days ago
Wow. Stunning. This wine gets more and more refined with each vintage. Best Mondeuse I’ve ever had. Violets, deep berry fruit, mint, so refined and vivid. Elegant Xmas spice. Palate is sweet and sensual with gorgeous black/red berry fruit with lovely sweetness and buffered by terrific minerality. So refined. Elegant for Mondeuse. Brilliant. — 16 days ago
Simultaneously focused and diverse. Golden apple, concentrated preserved lemon, alpine meadow, pressed chamomile, almond. Savory rock salt quality. Still quite vibrant, in contrast to the CellarTracker reviews for the vintage, though would agree that it should be enjoyed presently. Slightly hot, even though 12%abv — 3 days ago

It's sunny and just over 30°F today, so fire in the chimnea time! First flames of 2019.
One of our favorite new (2009) AOC's in France, this is 80% Gamay & 20% Poulsard, but the epitome of 100% sparkling strawberry juice! So GD delicious!
One thing to note, last bottle is always the best, we're out of stock now, but don't hold these too long. We've seen bottle variation, likely best to track lot codes on the bottles and make sure your buying a newer version than the last, since we're talking about an NV product. — 6 days ago
