"If it's not purity of expression--place, grape, vintage--then what else should we be looking for in our wines? Exactly. That is why we are in love with this bright, crunchy, mountain red from a man whose modest home includes a cheese room! How could you not want to drink a wine made by a man with a cheese room? Well maybe some of these other factoids will help: It's Mondeuse: a rare red varietal native to the Savoie, there is no added sulfur in the vineyard or bottling, and it's over-the-top good. For fans of lighter, spicier, more mineral infused reds need to get in bed with Yves." - PJ Wine

Importer Note:

Jean-Yves Peron is a young artisan patiently reviving ancient, almost forgotten high-altitude vineyards in the French Alps, near Albertville. After studying oenology in Bordeaux, he trained with natural winemakers Thierry Allemand and Jean-Louis Grippt in the Rhone Valley and Bruno Schueller in Alsace. 

Started in 2004, he works with multiple steeply terraced micro-parcels (3ha) of 115-130 year old Jacquere and Mondeuse vines, planted to friable mica-schist soils; his oldest parcels were planted in 1893, and have not seen phylloxera. The vines are high density (10,000/ha), single-staked gobelet, very low to the ground and very low-yielding; their uniform southern exposure gives them the sun's full benefit, as the mica-schist soil warms up in spring and enables to obtain a very good phenolic maturity. Organic farming, indegenous yeasts, non-interventionist winemaking, avoidance of filtering and fining and use of little or no sulphur makes these natural wines of the first rank.
