Domaine de l'Epinay 2018 Muscadet Serve et Maine "Esprit" sur lie

Grapes for “Esprit” are grown from 40 years old vines on more granitic bedrock, with gravel-silt topsoil. But, melon comes to ripeness much earlier here, so these plots are often picked from the first week of harvest. This cuvée tends to go through malolactic conversion, whereas the “Selection” and Clisson do not. This combined with the soil composition produce a more densely mineral focused expression. Muscadet wines at the domaine are treated traditionally, fermented with native yeasts in underground concrete vats. “Esprit” typically ages in concrete an additional 7 months sur lie prior to bottling.
