This is a wine produced from 50 to 70 years old vines carefully hand-picked during the harvest. Cold clarification of the grape juice, then traditional fermentation in concrete underground vats (typical of the Pays Nantais) with a temperature controlled for a better aromas extraction. The wine is then kept on its lees for 12 months before bottling adding more structure and body to the wine.
Tasting Notes: Dominant aromas of citrus and green apple with subtle floral and smoky – almost flinty- flavours, revealing a mineral edge and a lingering taste giving way to a full-bodied wine. Dry yet fruity, this is an exceptional example of a refined Muscadet.
Potential Ageing: 4-5 years. Served at: 10-12°C
Food/Wine Matching: Grilled Fish (mackerel), Sardines, Cure´ Nantais (cheese)
The Domaine des Tilleuls is located in the county of La Regrippie're in the heart of the Pays Nantais wine region to the west of the Loire Valley comfortably nestled near the Atlantic Ocean.
