Domaine de la Morandière, Muscadet sur Lie

Confusingly made from a grape that is called Melon de Bourgogne that is neither a melon or from Burgundy, Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine is often cited as one of France’s most undervalued wine appellations, which means that it’s home to some great value wines.  There’s no wonder this is one of our top sellers.

Grown near the mouth of the Loire, with its famous salt flats and oyster beds, it’s not surprising that this is a perfect partner for shellfish and other seafood.

All Muscadet should give you astringent acidity and bone dry freshness – which makes them ideal for sipping with shellfish or salty snacks – but sometimes that acidity and dryness can be a little too astringent?  That stuff needs to be balanced by some body and texture and you know that you’ll be getting that when you see the magic words ‘sur lie’.

Try this Muscadet-sur-Lie for lemon crispness balanced by a smooth, creamy finish and see why so many of our customers come back for this one, time and time again.

Lees ageing – ‘sur lie’ – is a method starting with light filtration and matures the wine on its ‘fine lees’.  These finer particles of dead yeast are regularly stirred into the wine and then allowed to slowly settle to the bottom of the VAT over a period of weeks before being stirred up again. Often, therefore, the wine is not filtered until just before bottling.  This process adds body and a creamy smoothness to the wine, and in the case of Muscadet-sur-Lie, perfectly balances that astringent dryness.
