Description

Fresh, sappy Muscadet with greater substance than the Templerie, but it too is Terra Vitis accredited.
Jérémie Huchet took over the running of the family domaine from his father in November 2005 and both expanded it (to 60ha) and signed up to Terra Vitis sustainable viticultural practices. The domaine is based at Château-Thébaud and comprises a number of different vineyards; the latest to be brought in to the domaine, on long-term lease, is Château de la Templerie, in the commune of Château Thébaud itself. 2010 was his first vintage here. The soils are granitic, with coarse sands, and well-drained, producing wines that are expressive early. Since taking on the property, no chemical fertilisers or herbicides have been used.

TASTING NOTES

Technically very dry, but not apparently so: tasty, mineral and evolved. Mature, elegant and extraordinarily refined.

FOOD PAIRING

Great with oysters or on its own as an aperitif
