The Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sub-appellation produces 80% of all Muscadet wine. Covering 8,200 hectares with 23 villages, the appellation is named after the rivers Sèvre and Maine that flow through it. Soil types ranges from granite and schist hillsides around the village of Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, to the predominantly clay based soils of Vallet. Almost half of the wine is aged sur lie.
A great dry white wine with a unique style & a fine and delicate minerality. Beautiful tension on the palate followed by hints of flower, melon and lime; crisp finish.
Muscadet de Sevre et Maine sur lie
Part of this cuvee is produced with 12 hours skin maceration; the other part is from directly pressed grapes. Aged on the lees for six months (no oak). Slightly filtered before bottling.
Ideal with all fishes, seafood and for sure oysters but do not hesitate to match it as well with a great goat cheese.
