Pepiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Monnieres-Saint Fiacre 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The Monnières-Saint Fiacre vineyard is situated in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. It is bordered by two rivers and its confluents: to the North by the Sèvre and to the southeast by the Maine, in a picturesque landscape of hills dotted with windmills. The vineyard is planted on a subsoil of gneiss covered by a fine top-soil of sandy limestone, and the constant winds in this site help keep the vines aerated. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully brought back to the cellar. Whole clusters with stems are pressed pneumatically. The grape juice is very lightly racked off its gross lees, then ferments naturally in glass-lined, underground vats for about 2 months using only indigenous yeasts. The wine ages a minimum of 2 years with its fine lees, which are stirred occasionally. This aging process gives the wine its robust structure. The resulting wine has subtle bitterness and a touch of refreshing citrus that can take you through the whole meal, from apéritif to cheese. It is perfectly suited for fish.
