Savoie ‘Jongieux’ Rouge (Mondeuse) 2019 Chevallier-Bernard
In the mouth the tannins are bold but supple and the texture is crunchy and sapid. The bramble fruit is augmented by a touch of plum now and the whole finishes long on that dark fruit and a twist of black pepper.
Chantal Chevallier met Jean-Pierre Bernard at the Lycée in Beaune. She originates from Savoie, whilst he was raised in the Beaujolais. Prior to 1996, Chantal worked as a vineyard consultant in the Beaujolais, whilst Jean-Pierre ran a négociant business in the region. Chantal’s parents Marcel and Francis, had moved from mixed farming in 1970 to specialise in vineyards, selling all their crop to a local négoce, which formed the business that Chantal and Jean-Pierre inherited in 1996.
