Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Les Bonnets Blancs, 2020 | Muscadet, Loire
Region: Muscadet, Loire
Grape: Melon de Bourgogne
Farming: Certified organic
Tasting Note: From vines up to 30 years old on schist and gneiss soils, this is a wonderfully classic example of a bone-dry, tangy, zesty Muscadet. With its proximity to the Atlantic coast the best wines have a deliciously mineral, briny character making them an excellent match for seafood.
Background: ‘Sur lie’ means that this Muscadet has spent time on its lees (6 months) which adds a creamy texture and savoury quality.
Serving: Fridge cold (6–8°C).
