Domaine Jean Aubron, Cuvee Elegance 2018
Muscadet Sevre Et Maine, Loire, France
Melon de Bourgogne. From 3.5 hectares of hand harvested, sustainably farmed (no chemical usage, cover crops, some parcels converting to organic), 40 year old vines. Jean-Pascal, the fourth generation of the family, pushes fermentation to the end to make bone dry, ageable muscadet. Citrus and subdued floral notes with pronounced minerality from volcanic and granite soils. Fermented in glass lined cement tanks and unfined.
