Domaine Saint Germain Mondeuse ‘Pied de Barme’ Rouge 2013, Savoie, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 4

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

How many wines come from Winter Olympic cities? It’s a select club but includes this red from near Albertville, host of the 1992 Winter Games. Mondeuse may look dense and black but it’s less forbidding than it looks. Fruity and supple, there’s a delicious spice and warmth, and great with cheese and lighter dishes.
