Domaine de l'Epinay 2020 Muscadet Serve et Maine Cru Clisson

Clisson, Epinay’s great vin de garde, hails from 2.5 hectares within the eponymous cru. Soils are gravel and silt over “granite de Clisson” bedrock. It is a warm, early-ripening site with vines planted more than a half-century ago. Harvests are pushed to optimal maturity, typically at least three weeks later than “Sélection” (“to be at the limit, just before the stage of over maturity,” the brothers say) and yields are tightly delimited at 40 hl/ha to maximize terroir expression.
The juice is put directly in vats for a fermentation of two to three weeks. The wine is then racked and stays on its fine lees for nearly 36 months. “It can ripen slowly and enrich itself on its deposit until it is bottled.” It is a powerful wine of character, with an intense and complex nose, showing the rich texture and fine balance of a great terroir of Muscadet on a relatively light alcoholic frame.
