Château de la Ragotière, Muscadet 'Les Vieilles Vignes' 2020Regular price €18.00
‘a great swathe of ripe fruit that is so crisp and refreshing’
98/100 Loire Buyers' Selection
A fuller expression of Muscadet sur lie, this wine is made from the fruit of vines between forty and sixty years old, and has the typical focus and clean persistence of its mica schist terroir.
There is added intensity in its precise fruit flavours thanks to a little bottle age and the character of those old vines.
‘Hyper classic aromas of crushed oyster shells, preserved lemon, tangerine zest, and mountain stream moss. The palate is a blast of maritime flavors particularly focusing on zippy citrus and finishing with an explosive blast of iodine.’
