Mondeuse Blanche

Mondeuse blanche is a white varietal planted mainly in the Savoie region. This isn’t a ‘version’ of the Mondeuse noire, but an independent varietal. It seems to have this name because it was used historically to soften the Mondeuse noire. Another fun fact, Mondeuse blanche is actually the mother of the Syrah grape. These wines generally have a good acidity and an alcohol content that assists in the maturing process. Rustic and powerful, these characterful wines have interesting citrus aromas and now get the attention they deserve, moving elegantly beyond their reputation for being ‘tough’ wines. Mondeuse blanche can also be blended with other white varietals from Savoie, the Rhône, or even with Chardonnay.
