"Le Fils des Gras Moutons", 2017
Honeycomb, peach, white flowers. Stone minerality on the palate. Dry and refreshing with a hint of peach pit and apricot. Made by Claude, Thérèse & Sébastien Branger in the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine region of France. The father and son team prunes their vines for low yields, harvests by hand (a rarity in this land of machine harvesting), and lets its wine rest on the lees until bottling, which is done without fining and with a light filtration—the classic sur lie technique. Sustainably farmed, organic. 100% Melon de Bourgogne.
