A wine created from an experimental batch that gave stunning results! This is a limited edition Muscadet Sèvre et Maine ‘sur lie’ made using only ‘wild yeasts’ which occur naturally on the skins of the freshly picked grapes – these natural yeasts tend to be temperamental but when successfully mastered, they produce an exquisite intensity of perfume and purity of flavour unmatched by cultured yeasts. Pleasant grapey aromas with a yeasty hint of fresh bread, the flavour is fresh and instantly zingy with mid palate fullness rounded off by a dry but fruity finish.

Sourced from well established, old, low yielding vines, in the best sub-region between the rivers Sèvre and Maine. The vineyards are south facing and the soil, sandy and mineral, which allows full ripening and excellent drainage. The 40-50 year old vines are trained on low Guyot trellis, planted with 4000 - 4500 vines per hectare. Soils are layered with ‘orthogneiss’ a cracked mineral rich rock through which the vine roots weave and nourish the vines.

Temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation with naturally occurring yeasts, the wine was left to ferment naturally at relatively low temperatures until all the yeasts had died. The wine was then left on it’s fine lees (‘sur lie’) for added weight and complexity until bottling – legally only from the 1st March.

Serve as an aperitif or with seafood (especially langoustine) and fish dishes (roasted sea bass). It also has enough richness to accompany veal or pork escalopes.
