Château de la Gravelle
|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 14 months, in underground glass-tiled vats, which are traditional to the Nantais wine region. No stirring of lees. Skin contact maceration.|
|Tasting||Pale lemon coloured wine. Floral nose with fruity notes of peach and grapefruit. Very good structure and minerality on the palate. Very long finish.|
|Recommended with…||Well suited to gourmet seafood like scallops, langoustines and other large shellfish.
Enjoy at approximately 13°C. Decanting recommended.
