Tasting Notes: A classic clean, fresh and minerally Muscadet that has a delicious weight from the lees contact and a slight citrus pith tang and a long, tingly saline finish.
Region: Loire Valley, France
Varieties: Melon de Bourgogne
Pairing: Great with goat's cheese, seafood and shellfish or as an apéritif. This wine can also be offered as a Sauvignon alternative that will not disappoint.
More Info: Located in the heart of the wine-growing region of Nantes, at la Haye Fouassière, the 35 hectare domaine is owned by Daneil Bideau and Marie Beatrice Giraud. Sustainably certified for many years, they have ten hectares which are now certified organic and in 2015 they built a new winery dedicated to their organic wines.
The wine is unfined and fermented with only natural yeasts and then spends all winter on the lees, adding a lovely texture and weight to the wine.
