cru vallet

AOP – MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE

Cru Vallet - 2017

Description:

Cru Vallet was born from a collective initiative aimed at promoting the best terroirs from the region, in and around the township of Vallet, in order to ultimately achieve its recognition as a « Cru Communal » or Village Appellation. Made from a single plot on our vineyard, the grapes grow on micaschist based soil with south east exposure, and rigorous work in the vines such as restricted yield and harvesting at full maturity. The Melon de Bourgogne grape variety, a true jewel of the appellation, will reveal all the glory of its grand Terroir. Extended-lees ageing of 35 months, in underground vats, gives it an extraodinary aromatic complexity and richer mouthfeel. Combining body and elegance, this Muscadet is a true gastronomic wine which can be paired with numerous associations.

Tasting Notes:

 » Yellow bright color. Great aromatic elegance on the nose. Rich and delicate on the palate with notes of quince, candied fruit and liquorice; and very good minerality on the finish. « 

Food Pairings:

Baked Oysters, Fish Tartares, Pike-perch fillets with Beurre Blanc sauce, White Meats, Hard Cheeses.
