Bottle Size Bottle (750ml) Color/Type White Country/State France Price $10 - $30 Producer J. Mourat Region Loire: Other Varietal Other Vintage 2015
A rich but vibrant white made from the Loire Valley’s most important white grape – the Chenin Blanc made famous by Vouvray – and Burgundy’s Chardonnay grape, which has thrived in warmer spots here for years. The vineyards are in the Fiefs Vendeens AOC, just a few miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean. The balance of warm Maritime sunshine and brisk Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen fully while retaining plenty of summer refreshment value and cut.
Delivers a wild blend of citrus (white grapefruit and lemon rind) aromas with accents of tree fruits like apples and peaches. On the palate it’s wonderfully fresh and bright from first to last, with notes of peach, apricot and apple lingering under zesty lime juice acidity. A joyful wine of great distinction to simply sip or pair with summer salads and seafood.
