Domaine de la Chauvinière, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie, 2020

Muscadet, grown at the mouth of the Loire (where the climate isn't that dissimilar to Cornwall) is the traditional French accompaniment to Atlantic oysters and other seafood. From low yielding vines on the estate's classic granitic soils - with a little clay. Open, generous mouthful with lemon and pear fruit, crisp and mouthwatering with textbook zest and balance, and a dry, gently saline finish. Now-2022

It is hard to believe when meeting Jérémie Huchet that he has been in charge of the family domaine for more than fifteen years; he really does not look old enough. The Muscadet region has struggled to adapt to changing tastes in wine and has been hit by a run of poor harvests leaving many growers unable to continue in business and reducing the size of the appellation by 40%. Against this trend Jérémie is expanding with purchases of the organically farmed Château de la Templerie amogst other land.

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.
