Region France, Loire
Grape Melon de Bourgogne
Style Preserved lemon, Salt, Yeasty
Bottle Size 75cl
Soft and easy going, the juice spends 4 months 'sur lie' meaning on the lees, or dead yeast cells, giving it a soft texture and slight breadiness to the palate.
We're near the Atlantic in the Loire valley here so that sea breeze and maritime influence gives the wine a slight salty smokiness.
This is fresh and easy drinking, and would go fantastically with a plate of oysters.
