Description

The Louis Métaireau Grand Mouton Domaine is located between the Sèvre and Maine rivers, at the heart of the Muscadet Appellation, in the commune of Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine. The old vines, some of which were planted in 1937, are deeply rooted in an exceptional terroir composed of gneiss, granite and amphibolite, which give the wine its mineral overtones and freshness. To preserve their older vines for many years to come they harvest them by hand. They also choose to apply sustainable agricultural techniques or “lutte raisonné” which involves minimising the use of chemicals wherever possible.

Produced from 100% Melon de Bourgogne from older vines, the colour is a straw lemon with lovely aromas of  melon, lemon, lime and green apple.   Concentrated with zingy acidity and really pure citrus fruit flavours. The time spent on the lees has given this an alluring texture, with a chalky complexity and a delightful biscuity finish.

A perfect accompaniment to seafood and shellfish, especially oysters.
