Production

The vineyards of this family Domaine are on some of the best sites in Nantais, around the village of Saint-Fiâcre which lies between the two rivers of Sèvre and Maine. Here the soils are layered with schist and orthogneiss, a cracked, mineral-rich rock through which the vine roots weave and nourish the vine. Made traditionally at this small estate, the grapes were hand-picked, lightly pressed to retain their delicacy and purity of flavour, and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve their aromas. The wine was left on its fine lees until the following spring to add complexity, texture and depth.

Tasting notes

Ripe pear fruit and flinty notes with a hint of yeasty lees on the nose. The palate has a classic salty tang and mineral complexity, richness and a tasty long finish.

Food match

Begs for shellfish on ice but would also work well with almost any grilled fish and soft cheeses.
