Domaine de la Chauviniere

Grape Varietal
100% Muscadet

Tasting notes
Jeremie is a vigneron independant meaning that all the wines come from domaine vineyards, everything is overseen by Jeremie himself and the wines are bottled at the estate to ensure consistency and quality. This wine comes from the Sèvre-et-Maine region, the highest quality appellation of the region. The granite soils give the wine its mineral and complex structure It is made 'Sur Lie' or aged on its lees throughout winter. This gives the wine a delicious aromatic intensity and richness of flavour The estate vineyards are on average 45 years old, with some up to 90 years old. Consequently, the wines show immense concentration of fruit Tasting note: Clear and bright with a wonderful bouquet of white flowers, citrus fruits, pear and a mineral edge. Bone-dry and zesty with plenty of fruit on the palate and a brisk, fresh finish. The ultimate seafood wine - serve chilled with oysters, mussels or barbecued prawns.
