Domaine de l'Ecu "Ensemble" Muscadet 2020
Domaine de l'Ecu
Located in Muscadet, Fred Niger of Domaine de l’Ecu has helped to change how the Muscadet appellation is thought of today: with organic certification for the last 40 years, extensive lees aging, terroir-based bottlings based on soil type, and non-interventionist winemaking in the cellar, his wines are a far-cry from the schlock that Muscadet was known for in the past.
Made from 100% Melon de Bourgogne and aged 10 months on the lees, Ensemble opens with citrus, smoke, and white flowers on the nose and is classically flinty and dry, with green apple and lemon zest, seaside brine and saline, finishing with mouth-watering acidity. Pair with oysters (duh), or fried fish, fatty fish, etc.
