Presentation

The wine
The wines from this estate are strongly influenced by traditional production methods, and are ambassadors for their appellations.
Situation
This appelation covers 23 communes to the south-east of Nantes, around Vallet, Clisson, Le Loroux Bottereau, and Vertou.
The “Divatte” cuvee is made from grapes grown on the left bank of the Loire, upstream from Nantes, in an area from Nantes, in an area known for its fine cuisine.
Terroir
Located between the Sèvre and Maine rivers, the Terroir, mixed with volcanic rock, has a great deal of light, stony soil, either silica-based (mica-schist gneiss) or more alkaline (gabbro amphibolite greenstone).
Vinification
Gently pressed, then fermented in temperature-controlled vats in order to keep the aromatic potential.
Maturing
Aged on its fermentation lees for 8 months to give more roundness and minerality.
Varietals
Melon de Bourgogne : 100%

Tasting advices

Serving
Best served chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour with greenish highlights and an intense floral bouquet with overtones of spice and fruit. Its richness, balance, and freshness make this wine an excellent example of its appellation. It is enjoyable young, but will age well for several years.
Food pairing
Best served as a perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood dishes. White meat dishes, especially when the wine is a few years old.
