France - Loire Valley - Muscadet de Sevre et Maine sur lie

The Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sub-appellation produces 80% of all Muscadet wine. Covering 8,200 hectares with 23 villages, the appellation is named after the rivers Sèvre and Maine that flow through it. Soil types ranges from granite and schist hillsides around the village of Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, to the predominantly clay based soils of Vallet. Almost half of the wine is aged sur lie.

A great dry white wine with a unique style & a fine and delicate minerality. Beautiful tension on the palate followed by hints of flower, melon and lime; crisp finish.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The light colored 2017 Muscadet Sevre et Maine is 100% Melon and is a fresh, quaffable effort that has plenty to like in its citrus, pear, and subtle mineral-laced aromas and flavors. It sells for a song and would be a solid house white to enjoy over the coming year or two.”
