Background

Grapes are harvested manually then carried to the wine cellar which much care. The pneumatic press is filled by gravity, the grapes are not crushed. There is a very light must settling then the juice is pumped into an underground vat for one to two months without any yeast addition. The wine is matured for 9 months on its fermentation lees with a few stirrings of the lees.

Tasting Note

"Sourced from the lieu-dit Les Gras Moutons, which has a gneiss terroir, an origin that has set this wine apart from the rest of the Ollivier portfolio, which is largely dominated by cuvées from granite terroirs. Expressive aromatically and already stylish showing pronounced minerality, it has a soft style but with a building vibrancy and mineral core coming through from underneath. This is great Muscadet!" - Andrew Guard WIne Imports
