Hautes Noelles Muscadet Sur Lie Cotes de Grandlieu les Granges 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

From his 24 hectares of vineyard land centered in the Cotes de Grandlieu sub-zone (average vine age is 30 years old), proprietor Serge Batard crafts staggeringly intense Muscadet that nonetheless displays all the zingy acidity and palpable minerality you'd expect from this seaside appellation. By working the soils throughout the vegetation cycle, they are able to avoid the use of chemical fertilizers and weed killers in the vineyards. Prolonged lees aging and bottling without racking give the wines extra texture and richness. Furthermore, Batard vinifies his parcels separately, harvesting by hand and blending just before bottling for maximum control over the final wine. Truly stupendous quality here!
