Chateau La Berriere Muscadet Sur Lie AOC 2016
Melon de Bourgogne was originally planted in Burgundy. It was imported to the Loire after the disastrous frost of 1709, because it resisted cold weather rather than because of its innate qualities. But just as the Jerez solera system transforms Palomino into something more interesting, so sur lie ageing seems to do the same for Melon. Produced on an 18th century domaine since 1737, Located 20 km from Nantes on south-west slopes bordering the Loire aged on its lees for minimum 3 months.
Elderflower and almond blossom aromas and flavours with honey and a nutty, minerally crisp finish.
