2015 Domaine de la Chaboissière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

SKU #1306661

Producer, Christophe Hallereau wasn't interested in being in the wine business until he inherited his family vineyards. Still maintaining his day job, he has become a weekend warrior winemaker maintaining the property and the cellar library. With 8 Ha in the village of Vallet, he now runs the local association of growers. All wines are fermented in concrete with native yeasts and minimal additions of SO2. Subsoils in the region are igneous with granite, gneiss and mica. Vallet is a pending cru appellation and is known for its clay based soils. The wines are racy and mineral driven. A recent staff seminar, we tasted wines going back to the mid-80s. The wines maintained freshness and mineral character proving these wines have the ability to age.

This is such a lovely, easy drinking wine at a great price point. Domaine De La Chaboissiere does Muscadet like no one else, with incredible aging potential and balance. Squeaky clean, but with depth and presence, this wine has lingering minerality and crisp notes of lemon peel and wet stone.

I recently re-tasted this delightfully inexpensive little Muscadet and was reminded of how good this wine tastes. Even with the long aging on the lees this wine has everything people are looking for in a Muscadet. Bright, clean, a little floral and saline characteristics all come together with plenty of acid and lift. There is a surprising amount of fruit weight here but with an incredibly clean finish. This is definitely a bottling that one could keep around for tons of occasions.

Demand for Muscadet has definitely been on the rise of late so we've not only answered the call but also exceeded expectations with the arrival of this impressive direct import. It's a traditional style Muscadet that's very floral with additional scents of seashell and pure saline and mineral notes on the palate. Good weight and texture belie great acidity as well. We're expecting a lot of repeat customers when it comes to this one.

From a sustainable producer, this has got to be the best "sur lie" I have ever tasted for the price. Although the wine spent 18 months on the lees, it remains very light with lifted fruit, zesty acidity, and the characterizing touch of salinity. Great with oysters, but if none are attainable, french fries will do just fine.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Melon de Bourgogne

- A white wine grape that originated in Burgundy, Melon de Bourgogne has, sadly, essentially vanished from that region. But fans of the varietal need not despair; its virtual disappearance from this pricy zip code has not prevented it from thriving in the Loire Valley, where it is made into the affordable, zippy, mineral, citrusy wines of Muscadet that pair so well with oysters. The best of those wines come from the region Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine. It is sometimes simply referred to as Muscadet.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
