Muscadet Sur Lie Verger Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin 375 ml HALF BOTTLE, 100% Melon de Bourgogne, aged on the lees for extra texture, very well balanced, more or less organic wine, great value. Like many Muscadet, this wine is 'sur lie', an expression often misunderstood which means the wines have been kept on the fine lees (the dead yeast cells and sediment left at the bottom of the tank after fermentation) for more than four months and have not been racked or filtered prior to bottling. This process adds texture and flavour to the often neutral tasting Melon grape but also gives the wine its now well established slight whiff of smokiness on the nose. This little Muscadet is a soft and easy going white, with lovely white fruits and subtle yeasty character, a delicious apero or with light fish dishes. The half bottle is perfect for a picnic!
