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

The main idea for Muscadet at the domaine is old vines, low yields, hand harvests. The “Sélection” bottling comes from 20- and 40-year-old vines grown on sandy-silty soils over gabbro. Cyrille and Sylvain point out that “the cycle of melon de bourgogne on these lands is rather ‘tardif’ and these parcels are often picked towards the end of the harvest.” In spite of this the wine does not typically go through malolactic and remains focused and bright, drawing an energetic expression from the terroir. Muscadet wines at the domaine are treated traditionally, fermented with native yeasts in underground concrete vats. “Sélection” typically ages in concrete an additional 8 months sur lie prior to bottling.
