Clos du Ferré, Goulaine
A firm favourite with sommeliers, this wine shows just how good top quality Muscadet can be. Made from 100% Melon de Bourgogne grapes, grown from 55 year-old vines on a parcel called 'Goulaine'. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts and left to settle on its fine lees for between 18-24 months. This method of extended ageing on lees gives the wine an added richness and unctuosity, whilst also retaining a lovely salty vitality, which is characteristic of all good coastal wines. Aromas of grapefruit and blackcurrant buds on the nose lead into flavours of toasted almonds and salty minerality on the palate. A delicious wine with a touch of umami, a perfect match for oysters, shellfish and white fish.
