ARBIN Mondeuse Vin de Savoie (Magnin) 2014

Posted on Posted in Domaine Louis Magnin, Occasional Thoughts

Drinking this exquisite wine this evening, a reminder of the past when wines had a vibrant freshness with modest alcohol levels and scintillating clarity of flavors and aromas. This effort from Magnin is the work of a master vigneron. A wine of impeccable balance with terroir in sharp relief; full with aromas of the mountains … the herbal floor mixed with dropped pine needles and the wild, slightly sauvage fruitiness on the palate. A wine of ultimate versatility, lithe as a ballerina that permits a marriage to fish dishes for example while tantalizingly rustic which can stand up to game birds or even more robust red meat dishes. Highly recommended … I love this wine.
