Details

Mondeuse Prieure Saint Christophe Michel Grisard, Biodynamic Wine from the Savoie, superb fruit with a hint of cherry and pepper that evolves on violets, cold ashes and peppers (the ampelographic kinship with the syrah grape seems obvious), tangy and exquisite taste of fresh red fruits, extending to the transcendent finesse, superb wine. A wine of such deoth and style that one would think they are drinking fine old Burgiundy or something more lauded than Mondeuse. Grisard shows the potential for greatness of this little known grape from the Savoie.

Michel Grisard bought the ruins of Prieuré Saint-Christophe in 1978 and began tending the vines. He had previously spent 10 years working on his father's vineyard, but left in 1982 to run Prieuré full time, with the aim of making Mondeuse a famous grape. His first vintage was released in 1983 and since then his wines have gone strength to strenth, converting to biodynamics 10 years later. He is now referred to as the Pope of Mondeuse, and it's largely thanks to him that the grape variety has the reputation that it does today. His 5.4 hectare estate spans two villages, one of calcareous soil, the other clay-limestone. Most of the vineyard is dedicated to Mondeuse though just over a hectare is given to Altesse (or Rousette). Michel produced his last vintage in 2014, and since then the vineyards have been managed by Clement Giachino, son of Frederic who runs Domaine Giachino.
