Domaine Lupin Mondeuse '17

Domaine Lupin is a small domaine based in the village of Frangy. About a 35 minute drive, southwest of Geneva, Switzerland, this region is well known for its bright, mineral driven white wines.

Bruno Lapin and his family farm 5 hectares of vineyards on a hillside called Les Aricoques. Bruno considers this location the best in the region due to the full southern exposure and the relatively low altitude that protects the vineyards from the cold northern winds. The soils are molasses, a crumbly calcareous soil resulting from old mountain erosion.

The vineyards at Domaine Lupin are farmed organically and hand harvested. In the winery, the grapes are always fermented with native yeast. While many of his neighbors de-acidify the wines, Bruno never needs to, an ode to his impeccable farming.

Today, we are featuring the rarity of the Lupin cellar, his fantastic Mondeuse. Frangy, which is primarily a white wine area, produces a softer, more Beaujolais-like style of Mondeuse.

Bruno's Mondeuse vines are 60-70 years-old, planted by his grandfather. He ferments the wine in stainless steel and ages it for nine months in used barrels that he acquires from his friends at Domaine de la Romanée Conti in Burgundy.

The 2017 offers beautiful aromas of wild strawberry, plum, and mineral. Fresh and lively on the palate, it does offer some weight in the mid palate. It finishes with great freshness and complexity. It is the quintessential French country red. Try pairing it with the classic regional dish - fondue! Make it with Comte, wild mushrooms, and white wine (they use Altesse).

Only 480 bottles are allocated to the United States, of the 3600 bottles produced. We here at Perman Wine received 10% of that. Franco-philes don't miss this!
