Terroir : This Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie matured in French oak casks reflects an original winemaking. The parcel is facing Southwest and the wine is sourced from 40 years old vines. The soil supports the root structure of the vine and influences the drainage levels and amount of minerals and nutrients that the vine is exposed to. The subsoil is composed of disintegrated mica schist stone which offers a high-quality terroir. It is beautifully balanced with woody aromas.

 

 

 

Tasting Notes : The colour is yellow with golden hues. It is elegant and seductive with floral aromas (buttercup and lilac) but also rum and vanilla.
