Louis Magnin: Mondeuse 2015
Manually harvested Mondeuse, fermentation in steel tanks with only natural yeast and then 20 months in large oak barrels.
Grape variety Mondeuse Noire (relative to Syrah/Shiraz) from the year of 2015 (normal slightly warm year); 7,652 bottles were produced (numbered).
Louis Magnin operates with great care both in the vineyard and in the winery; minimises additives and since 2012 certified for organic farming in France*. Biodynamic principles are followed for the most part, too, but without formal certification.
* Note that even though Louis Magnin is certified organic in France, the wines are not marketed as organic (“ekologiska”) in Sweden as Souplesse Wines have not yet applied for distributional certification.
