The Details

In a Nutshell

Delightful, traditionally made Muscadet from the star of the region.

Tasting Notes

Crisp, flinty notes with a hint of lemon on the nose. The palate has fresh, zesty, savoury bites with hints of green apple along with yeasty lees notes. A lovely classic Muscadet with character and flavour representative of the vintage.

Production Notes

The vineyard lies on one of the best sites in Nantais at St Fiacre. Here the soils are layered with 'orthogneiss', a cracked mineral rich rock through which the vine roots weave and nourish the vine. 'Vieilles Vignes' is made from Nelly Marzellau's oldest 45 year old vines - a rarity for Muscadet where most are dug up after 40 years.

Made traditionally at this small estate. The grapes were hand-picked, lightly pressed to keep all the delicacies and purity of flavour and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve aromas. The wine was left on its fine lees until the following spring to add complexity and extra zest.

Producer - Domaine les Grands Presbytères

Domaine les Grands Presbytères is based in St Fiâcre, southeast of Nantes, at the mouth of the beautiful River Loire and was established by Nelly Marzelleau’s grandfather in the 1950’s.

Oyster minerality sits alongside sea spray iodine, lemons and limes, and daffodil aromas.

Herbal and subtle, with wax and honeyed notes, this has a creamy texture with steely backbone.
