Description

Muscadet is an underrated white wine from the western part of the Loire Valley, next to the Atlantic. Much of it is crisp, dry, light and acidic, which works in the summer on holiday there but doesn’t always travel well! If you take one step up in quality to purchase a ‘Sur Lie’ style (where the wine is aged in the cellar for longer, on its fermentation yeast lees) you are rewarded by fine, elegant flavour that makes a delicious food match.

Domaine de la Quilla is found in the heart of the Muscadet appelation in La Haye-Fouassière, Loire Valley, just nine miles from the Atlantic coast.  It has been run by the Vinet brothers for the past 20 years, their father Gustave having created the estate in 1948.  Daniel Vinet looks after the vines and Gerard Vinet, his younger brother, is in charge of winemaking. Muscadet is made from the Melon de Bourgogne variety which has a classic crisp and citrus fruit character with great acidity. This has the typical verve and seaside-esque freshness of good Muscadet, plus a touch of extra flavour and body from ‘Sur Lies’ ageing. There’s some lemon fruit character, a yeasty almost dough-like savouriness on the nose plus a juicy, stone fruit palate and crisp refreshing finish. Perfect with seafood dishes, including a good fish and chips! 12% ABV.
