Domaine de la Grenaudiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2020
Domaine de la Grenaudière has been in the hands of the Ollivier family for more than 200 years — although the estate dates to the 1700s — and is currently run by brothers Guy and Jean-Luc; the former tending to the vines and overseeing winemaking, the latter dealing with the business side. The brothers inherited the 74-acres estate with old hillside vines (the youngest vines are 25 years-old) that are rooted in between the rivers Sèvre and Maine, tributaries of the Loire.
Their Muscadet is a seriously delicious version of the variety, made in the traditional method with extended time 'sur-lie' (on lees) for eight months with regular stirring to provide more mid-palate texture, moreish salinity and creamy chew.
