Bone Dry, crisp and zesty - beautiful long saline finish.
Tasting Notes: A vibrant Muscadet made from Melon de Bourgogne vines grown on soils composed of soil, clay, silt and gneiss. The wine is aged on its lees for 6 months giving texture and body which complements the fresh, zesty fruit flavours and finishes with a long, saline finish which is a true representation of the terroir.
Having taken over the family estate in 2001, Jérémie has changed it beyond recognition and is seen as the up-and-coming producer in the Muscadet region. Going from strength to strength, he is continuing to increase the size of his estate, which now covers 64 hectares, of which one third is now certified organic. Jérémie`s carefully thought out program of investment is now clearly bearing its fruits, and the combination of his stainless steel vats, new underground vats and a `cubist` egg go some way to show his determination and efficiency. He runs the non-organic vineyards according to the principles of sustainable viticulture; yields are held low by a minimal use of fertiliser and with crop thinning when and where necessary.
At the mouth of the Loire is the Pays Nantais which spans 90km east to west, bordering Anjou. The region surrounds the city of Nantes, which lies on the coast. Given this location the Pay Nantais is influenced by the Atlantic currents and breezes which ensure a cool climate, which is perfect for the crisp style of wines produced here. The soil is composed of gravel riverbeds on which vineyards are typically planted with the Melon de Bourgogne variety, famous in the production of Muscadet.
