Muscadet “Prieure de la Fine Grande Reserve Vieilles Vignes” Cotes de Grand Lieu


Out of stock

Dom. Herbauges, Muscadet "Prieure de la Fine", Cotes de Grand Lieu, Loire Valley, France, 2019
{sustainable} 100% Melon

Herbauges overlooks the Grandlieu Lake, thus the name of this cuvée. This most prestigious vineyard is the top in the appellation. The AOC was created in 1995 and represents 17 communes around the Grandlieu. Intensely aromatic with pear and white chalk flavors, this very dry Muscadet shows a bit of spritz in the mouth from the wonderful acidity and literally mouthwatering flavors. Yes, a veritable lake in your mouth after you swallow!
Serving Suggestion: Shellfish is a must, and if you dip it in a little clarified butter you will have a wine powerful enough to complement and never compete. Crab, oyster, mussels, or scallops tonight?
