Sea spray, a dash of green olive and lots of dainty, perfumed fruit. Taut palate that broadens into cool, fleshy peach stones and white flowers, stretching out into a gently leesy finish. Bottled without SO2 and matured sur lie, this 100% Melon de Bourgogne is beautifully expressive and lush with fruit, much more than many a Muscadet!
A producer of scintillating estate and single-vineyard Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sure Lie. Michel’s grandfather, Henri, took the first step of this journey with his wife Agathe. Michel took the reins in 1985, soon after buying the vineyards his father and grandfather had farmed as part of a share-cropping arrangement. Michel began conversion to organic farming in 2010 and harvested his first fully organic grapes in 2013. He’s not only a fine winemaker, he’s also a bit of a philosopher.
