Tasting Notes

Mother and daughter, Véronique and Aurore, continue the work of previous generations of their family to produce terroir-focused Muscadet in their 75 hectares of the Loire Valley spread over 3 domaines. The grapes for this Anima Mea wine are from 65 year-old vines at Château de la Gravelle which is known for its unique terroir – gabbro (a volcanic rock) beneath clay soils both of which contribute to the wine’s complexity, its distinctive gunflinty mineral notes, texture and ageing capacity. Ageing the wine underground on its lees (‘sur lie’) in glass-lined vats for 14 months adds to the complexity and texture. 

Food Pairing

This is a beautiful medium to full-bodied dry white wine, not light as you might be more used to seeing in some Muscadets – Muscadet Sèvre et Maine wines are known for being richer and more age-worthy than standard Muscadet. The complex aromas and flavours include stone fruits and lemon with minerally notes and the wine has a really long finish. This is an amazing white wine, drinking well now but it will keep and develop for a number of years.

 

  • Serve at: 10 – 12oC

Producer's Notes

“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.”

“Lovely ripe stone-fruit on the nose. Sweet-tart-bright greengage and vineyard peach, with this rather intriguing brushed-stone texture. A little bit of grassiness, sweet, soft green-herb freshness, almost minty. Shy but charming.”
