September WINE OF THE MONTH

Domaine de la Chauvinière   Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2016

Available from Saturday this stunning wine is produced from vines on granite soil, this Muscadet is elevated from the unique variety that is, Melon de Bourgogne. A grape with a soft character, which allows it to be a true expression of the terroir. The Melon de Bourgogne grape matures slightly later than usual, resulting in an ample and harmonious crisp finish. Muscadet (Melon) is a wine for those who love anything-but-fruity wines. They are lean, green, and have a fascinating almost saline-like quality to the taste.

Serve it with shellfish, seafood, fish, or as an aperitif. Absolutely sublime with fresh oysters. 

"Stony and pear fruited but with terrific intensity on the palate, the fine, pear-like texture gives it really impressive length. There's some stone-fruit richness but overall it is the textural finesse and complexity that carries this to a long finish. Bone-dry and with a sour stony aftertaste that adds to the mouth-watering effect." 

A wonderful example of a Loire Valley wine. Light, fresh and dry with a lingering finish. Great value and well worth sampling.
