Tasting notes:

The Domaine de la Noe Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie is a lovely, pale yellow colour with a very slight touch of gold.

The nose is refreshing and elegant, with lemon citrus notes, lime and slightly richer notes of hazelnut and yeasty lees.

The palate is very elegant and quite aromatic. Ther eis more citrus notes, lemon flesh and lime peel, with a lingering richness from being left to mature sur lie. There is a very slight fizzy finsh to the wine, adding a further lightness. 

About the wine:

The melon de bourgogne grapes are carefully harvest from vines averaging 35 years old. After harvest the grapes are lightly pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, spending an extended period of time on its lees, before bottling. There is no racking or filtration before bottling. 

About the producer:

Domaine de la Noe has a history dating back over 100 years. In 1870, the Drouard family planted new vines in small holdings near the 'Noe' brook, shortly after the phylloxera epidemic devastated the vineyards of France. 

Over the following years, to the present day, the Domaine has grown and modernised, now comprising 60 hectares and modern winemaking facilites, to produce the finest possible wines.
