Château de la Gravelle
|Anima Mea BIO|
|Appellation||Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie|
|Grape variety||Melon B.|
|Terroir||This vineyard has a rather unusual terroir as the subsoil is comprised of the volcanic rock gabbro, covered by a 40 cm-thick layer of clay. This unusual soil gives the wines distinctive minerality and lemony notes.|
|Winemaking methods||Kept on lees for six months, in underground glass-tiled vats, which are traditional to the Nantais wine region. No stirring of lees.|
|Tasting||The terroir brings finesse and elegance to this wine.
Fresh, lemony nose with notes of gunflint. Powerful, mineral-driven palate. Very long finish. Ripeness and roundness, with excellent balance.
|Recommended with…||Shellfish, noble sea or river fish, selected cheese, or hors d’oeuvres. Enjoy chilled at approximately 12°C.|
