This is a Muscadet distinguishing itself with its particular fermentation called “malo-lactique” during which the acidity is softened giving the wine more roundness while evolving gracefully on its thin lees for up to 6 to 8 months before bottling.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful citrus aromas and wild flowers to the nose followed by a gentle smoothness of almond and buttery notes which gives more roundness and tenderness to the palate.
Potential Ageing: 3-4 years
Food/Wine Matching: Fish with buttery sauce (Beurre Blanc), Cheeses from the Loire
