La Soeur Cadette Vin de France Melon de Bourgogne Blanc 2019

'The first time we tried a Melon de Bourgogne from this domaine we were amazed by the purity of the fruit and the depth of flavour (this was at the iconic Paris restaurant, Le Chateaubriand).

This grape is common in the Muscadet appellations found around Nantes near the Atlantic coast, however it has almost disappeared from Burgundy. We knew that there were very few producers of this wine left in Burgundy and even fewer who practice organic agriculture.

This wine is a great favourite of ours especially given the price considering how little is produced. It is a perfect food wine marrying well with many flavours, but it comes into its own with terrines, parfaits, charcuterie and other light meat dishes.

Normally this cuvée is made with grapes partly from the Cadette parcel and partly from another grower but in 2018 they had enough grapes to make it entirely with grapes from the estate, which is certified organic and has been for many years.

Aged in stainless steel after a short elevage (bottled around April 2020)'
