90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2009

Bright red.  Lively dark berry scents are complicated by notes of violet and Indian spices, with a hint of olive that reminds me of syrah. Juicy and nicely focused, with pure blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that pack a serious punch without any excess weight. Finishes tangy and precise, with noteworthy length and persistent spiciness. Mondeuse is a distant relative of syrah, and Bugey, on the eastern edge of France in the Ain département, received its full AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) status in early 2009
