- Melon de Bourgogne
- 75cl; Natural Cork
- 12.5% ABV
Pale, tangy, crisp wine from the Western end of the Loire river, rendered more interesting by lees contact: time on the gunk left after fermentation, which gives texture and complexity to this light, quaffable wine style.
Traditionally partners river and sea fish. Try a dandelion salad with warm hazelnut vinaigrette, salmon trout poached in white wine or roasted sea bass with tomato coulis and fennel salsa.
The soils consist mainly of limestone and sand. The method of training is a single Guyot system.
Early picking of the grapes, sometimes before full ripening to get a good acidity. No malolactic fermentation. To preserve maximum freshness the wine is bottled at the Chateau straight from the vat off its lees (Sur Lie) without any racking.
