Dom. l'idylle Mondeuse savoie red 2021


The 2021 Domaine de L'Idylle Mondeuse Le Tithonien is a red wine from the Savoie region of France, made from 100% Mondeuse grapes. This vintage has been highly regarded. Tasting notes for this wine describe a heady bouquet on the nose, featuring fresh red fruits like cherries and red currants, accompanied by bright notes and a subtle hint of white pepper. As the wine opens up, it reveals dark plum undertones with an elegant, mineral undertone. The palate is juicy and medium-bodied, echoing the ripe, red fruit flavors with a touch of spiciness. The wine is appreciated for its fine-grained tannins, balanced acidity, and minerality, leading to a refreshing and persistent finish. A delightful blend, akin to a cross between an eager Beaujolais Villages and a nice young Ventoux, with a sappy quality that allows for slightly chilled drinking. It is also praised for being a modern red that is low in alcohol. The wine exhibits great intensity, full of fruit, elegance, and harmony. The wine pairs well with a variety of dishes, including grilled dishes, BBQs, hearty roasts, roasted potatoes and onions, grilled Portobello mushrooms, rich casseroles, beef stew, and international fare like Lebanese stuffed eggplant or Italian cheese with spices and herbs. It is also suitable with traditional Swiss cuisine, such as brisolée.
