Out of fashion for a while but the quality is up and the wine is back on the block. This classic Muscadet has a subtle bouquet of acacia and honeysuckle. Crisp, dry with refreshing acidity – you can almost taste the sea air!
Clos de la Fontaine Vielles Vignes, Muscadet Serve et Maine Sur Lie
£12.80 Per Bottle
Situated in the heart of the wine-growing region around Nantes, this Domaine has been run by three associates since 1996, all of whom come from local wine-growing families: Denis Brosseau, Jean Hervouet and Eric Vincent. They bring their expertise and knowledge of previous generations together, to produce striking white wines. The estate is managed according to the organic ‘Terra Vitis’ programme, a codified system which encourages not only respect for the environment but knowledge of the land, parcel by parcel. Therefore only natural rather than chemical solutions are pursued in the vineyard.
