Following decades of stunning winemaking, Jacques Maillet has retired. The 2015 Mondeuse is a true testament to his work. The Mondeuse grape is considered the cool climate cousin of Syrah; this grape gives an incredible concentration of fruit and spice, making it a great alternative to red burgundy.
