Domaine des Herbauges, 'La Roche Blanche', Muscadet Sur Lie Côtes de Grandlieu, Loire, France

£10.79

This is one of our favourites. A delicious full-bodied Muscadet. Golden in colour, expressive, honey aromas, with grapefruit and citrus notes. Lovely on it's own or with food. For the price, it's great. Muscadet is making a comeback and it's not hard to see why with wines like this.

This family run estate has been in production since 1864 and is now the largest single estate in the region. The vineyards benefit from an exceptional microclimate; the warmth of the Atlantic brings spring early, while the huge Lac de Grandlieu acts like a giant storage heater through growing season. Fourth generation winemaker, Jérôme is committed to the sustainability of the vineyards as well as to the health of the vineyard workers he has even grassed over 100% of the vineyards to reduce the vigour of the vines and to soak up rain at harvest.
