Arbin, Mondeuse, “La Rouge”
A cuvée from a parcel of 60-year-old vines within the lieu-dit of Les Rochettes above Arbin, with soils marked by red clay and stones which have fallen from the mountain and broken down over millennium. This wine undergoes a two-week maceration and is aged in large tronconique barrels for one year. A classic Mondeuse, the nose is pointed with a refreshing cherry fruit. It is open on the palate, and there is a slightly bitter stone-fruit note and a lively, fresh acidity. Juicy and satisfying, a wine of substantial structure. Only 25 cases imported.
