Muscadet is one of the super classics of France. Much forgotten and consequently great value. From Jérémie Huchet and family, this 2018 has brilliant intensity from old vine fruit in the superior Sèvre et Maine area. Citrusy with seabreeze freshness.
"Such a crisp, refreshing white, full of sunshine – a lovely French classic from Jérémie Huchet"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for the Loire
We’ve worked with Jérémie Huchet and his father, Yves, at Domaine de la Chauvinière for many years. Each year, we taste Muscadets from many other producers, but they never quite measure up to those from Jérémie. His Le Grand Fief Muscadet comes from 45 year old vines located on granite soils in the top area – Sèvre et Maine. These factors add up to a brisk minerality with mouthwatering lemon, apple and pear flavours. After fermentation, the wine is aged ‘sur lie’, on its lees, which adds a little creamy weight and texture. The light and refreshing style is sure to make you think of summer, whatever the weather. We love it well chilled as an apéritif, or served with all sort of fresh seafood – moules marinères to panfried lemon sole.
