2019 Château de la Pierre Vieilles Vignes Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu sur Lie, Domaine des Herbauges

This beautiful property was bought by Jérôme in 2007. He says that, as well as a perfect place to grow vines, it’s also the ultimate picnic spot, where the family like to shuck oysters with a bottle of the château’s beautiful wine. The 2019 has such a pretty nose - citrus, floral, salty… you can just imagine how well this would go with a seafood platter. The sur lie ageing gives it a fine texture and a lively freshness which are so well expressed in this light-bodied, paradigm Muscadet.

About this producer

Domaine des Herbauges

Jerôme Choblet is the fourth generation of the family to tend the vineyards around the Lac du Grandlieu, which were given their own appellation in the late 1990s. He works the soil organically, although is not seeking certification - he mistrusts the system. Rather, he concentrates on showing off the different characteristics of the vineyards, treating each of the wines in a slightly different fashion. The results are always impressive.
