Country: France

Mondeuse is a red grape variety that is primarily found in the Savoie region of eastern France but is also found in Argentina and Australia.
It has a characteristic dark blue colour and retains high level of acid thus making it a good for long-lived wines.
Mondeuse is similar to, but not identical to, the Muscardin grape which is well-known as one of the many Chateauneuf-du-Pape permitted varieties.
There is only a little over 200 hectares of this grape variety planted in France.
