THE VINEYARD LIES ON ONE OF THE BEST SITES IN NANTAIS AT SAINT-FIÂCRE. HERE THE SOILS ARE LAYERED WITH ORTHOGNEISS, A CRACKED, MINERAL-RICH ROCK THROUGH WHICH THE VINE ROOTS WEAVE AND NOURISH THE VINE. MADE TRADITIONALLY AT THIS SMALL ESTATE, THE GRAPES WERE HAND-PICKED, LIGHTLY PRESSED TO RETAIN THEIR DELICACY AND PURITY OF FLAVOUR, AND FERMENTED AT COOL TEMPERATURES TO PRESERVE THEIR AROMAS. THE WINE WAS LEFT ON ITS FINE LEES UNTIL THE FOLLOWING SPRING TO ADD COMPLEXITY AND EXTRA RICHNESS.
Crisp, flinty notes with a hint of yeasty lees on the nose. The palate is fresh and savoury with the breadth of a warmer vintage and a ripe, almost tropical (starfruit?) character to the fruit. A lovely Muscadet.
Begs for shellfish on ice, but would also work well with almost any grilled fish. Would also work nicely with soft cheeses or goats cheese.
