2018 Dom de la Chauviniere Muscadet Sevre et Maine
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 and 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.
"Super-fresh nose with lovely grapefruit, melon and a touch of musky grape-juice scent too. Beautiful salinity and refreshment on the finish, although the acid is quite soft and fluffy. Medium body, reasonable persistence. A great example of classic Muscadet in soft focus.

Owner and winemaker Jeremie Huchet is on the forefront of exploring the terroir of Muscadet. Historically overlooked as a simple and ordinary wine, the quality available in Muscadet has only recently gandered the intrigue it deserves. By blending his single-vineyard Muscadet selections, Jeremie is able to demonstrate expression and balance available in one of France's most popular regions. Farmed organically, the Domaine de Chauviniere vineyards sit on the west of the Loire Valley.
