Melon Blanc Vendage Nocturne - Organic & Vegan


Description & Tasting Notes

Thanks to being almost completely surrounded by the Sèvre river, this 9 hectare estate benefits from a unique micro-climate and Pierre-Henri is able to select the best plot for each style of wine. To create a wine which best accentuates the vibrancy of Melon de Bourgogne (Melon Blanc) he chose ‘La Cantire’, a fully organic, north-facing plot with schist soil. Grapes are grown organically and were harvested in the cool of the night (again for maximum freshness) and cool macerated on their skins for 12 hours. Once pressed, fermentation was carried out using yeasts naturally present on the grape skins. Unlike the richer style of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie (which is bottled in the Spring after harvest), Vendange Nocturne is bottled in early December with no lees ageing and is naturally lower in alcohol (11%).

Lovely, green melon fruit, deliciously fresh and bright yet savoury and sapid too with a touch of salinity on the finish which is satisfying and flavoursome. Alcohol is 11% so refreshingly light.

Hailing from the western Loire, this light bodied yet tasty white wine pairs well with shellfish, seafood and grilled fish.
