Episode 5: Mondeuse Noire in Savoie

Wine from the Alps in Savoie, the local red mountain grape Mondeuse Noire explained by Pierre Gouttenoire, French winemaker.

In the eastern part of France, high up in the mountains, the region of Savoie represents France’s bright mountain wines. There are several white grapes in this part of the Alps, but at the foothills of Mont Blanc we find a red mountain child, Mondeuse Noire, a grape used to make distinctive fresh reds as well as more complex oak-aged versions from the Cru regions Arbin and Saint Jean de la Porte.

I call myself Rebecca Wine on social media mainly because my name is so long, and wine synthesizes who I am. Since the late 90'ies, my world has revolved around wine in every moment. From what I do for a living to who I ended up marrying. From the outside, I bet it seems a little boring to have just one obsession, but it's so strong that there's no room for anything else (except of course my babies).
