Made from 45 year old vines grown in soils of micaschist and granite. The yields are low and harvested at the last possible moment, resulting in vibrant, mature fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich for a Muscadet, with a lemon curd core, but still plenty tangy and vibrant, with chamomile, sea salt and savory herb notes cutting through the finish. Drink now. "
