|Description:||The vineyards of Muscadet profit from a very specific terroir. A few kilometres from the Atlantic it benefits in part from the influence of the ocean and in part from a micro climate from the south of the Loire principally between the two rivers, the Sèvre and the Maine. The soil originates from the foothills of the central volcanic mountains so that it is predominantly schist. These different elements combine with the grape variety of the Melon de Bourgogne to bring Muscadet sur lie its unique character in the world of wine. In no other wine growing region can one find a style resembling Muscadet. Muscadet sur lie should in no way be considered as an all purpose wine reproduced to the taste of the world market. Its difference captivates the experienced wine taster. Unfortunately Muscadet has had its reputations brought into disrepute by operators seeking quantity rather than quality and is under estimated by the general public as it is not well understood. Muscadet sur lie does not suffer from mediocrity. At its best it is able to rank with the top wines of the world.|
