2019 Jean-Charles Girard-Madoux Mondeuse

Availability: In stock (11)

The story of Jean-Charles Girard-Madoux is one of reclamation. For many generations, his family owned a small domaine along the steep slopes of the foothills of the Alps in the southeast of Chambéry. His grandparents were the last to plant new vines (which form the basis of his current production) before the domaine was sold in 1976. Young Jean-Charles took an interest in winemaking, made it his course of study, and in 2006, returned to his familial homeland to re-purchase the vineyards of his familial heritage. This red is a classic expression of the Savoyard native variety mondeuse, which bears resemblance and distant genetic relation to syrah, famously grown just a little to the west of here. We love mondeuse with fresh bread and the best, well-aged mountain cheese you can find.
