Domaines Landron 2015 Le Fief du Breil
Origin: AOP Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, Loire Valley, FR
Grape(s): 100% Melon de Bourgogne
This Muscadet is grown on a terroir with a strong personality and reveals citrusey pineapple aromas combined with a smokiness from the bedrock. Beautifully ripe grapes and 30 months’ aging on lees bring great complexity to this wine, which needs a few years’ patience to be enjoyed at its full potential. With time, the smoky mineral character from the orthogneis rocks becomes less edgy and the palate is enveloped by an oilier mouthfeel from the extended lees aging.
