Thierry Tissot Mondeuse "Mataret" 2012

Monduese Mataret

Vinification 100% Mondeuse from the Mataret vineyard. Manual harvest, 90% de-stemmed. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel, then macerated for two weeks with numerous remontages and pigeages (the latter done with the winemaker’s feet). The wine is aged in tank for 6-8 months and then extensively in bottle.

Tasting Notes A dark and structured wine with distinctive tannins, yet surprisingly light on the palate. This wine is redolent of forest smells of mushrooms and blueberries, while also showing some savory, meaty, qualities.
