Beautiful pale gold, this Muscadet opens on a nose of honey with notes of white flowers and citrus fruits. The mouth is ample, fresh, complex, floral, with notes of stony mineral, and a fresh long finish.
Ageing potential of 10 years or more. Vegan.
A gastronomic wine par excellence, this “Vieilles Vignes” is the perfect accompaniment for a fish in sauce, white meats or an aged camembert.
