Pale yellow with silver highlights. Expressive with floral and fruity notes (exotic fruits), slightly vegetal. Fresh, round and full-bodied; the finish is very fruity with an underlying vegetal edge.

Ideal with crayfish, lobster, prawns and goat cheese

My Notes:

About Sauvion:

One of the best-known Muscadet producers, Sauvion has long been established in the Loire Valley. Jean-Ernest (often referred to as the "Wizard of the Loire") and Yves Sauvion have carefully put together a range of delicious and diversified wines that have set the tone for much of the Loire Valley.

Château du Cléray-Sauvion, located in the heart of the Nantes region, is one of the oldest estates of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine region and serves as the home to the Sauvion family. It is also one of the few Muscadet-producing Châteaux.
