£11.00

Product Description

With a cristal clear golden colour, this is a charming, full-bodied Muscadet that has expressive minerality, honey and grapefruit. The palate is punctuated by flattering lemon notes with a light crisp finish. The perfect aperitif.

This family estate has been in production since 1864. Dynamism is now shown under Jérôme Choblet with 87 hectares in production and a further 22 at the Château de Lorière; making this the largest single estate in the region. Set just south of Nantes the vineyards benefit from an exceptional microclimate; the warmth of the Atlantic brings Spring early, while the huge Lac de Grandlieu acts like a giant storage heater through growing season, giving extra ripeness and more fruit to the wines. Jérôme is committed to the sustainability of the vineyards as well as to the health of the vineyard workers he has even grassed over 100% of the vineyards to reduce the vigour of the vines and to soak up rain at harvest.
