2012 Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur lie, Domaine la Haut Févrie

Muscadet de Sevre et Maine sur lie, Domaine la Haut Fevrie
The brilliant smoky intensity of this pure Melon de Bourgogne confirms that September 2012 did indeed shine down on the Pays Nantais. Domaine La Haute Fevrie is a new name to Berrys’ list, but clearly they have both fine terroir in the prime Sevre et Maine region close to Nantes, along with the experience and sensitivity to convert that into delicious wine. 

I admire the way that this wine, of a mere 12% abv, over-delivers in the fruit and smoky minerality department; it’s light yet also so pure, with salty citrus notes, a fleshy suave core, stony, obviously born of a great vintage but understated, well-balanced & self-effacing all the same. This is their ‘simplest’ wine in their Muscadet range, yet how often the least molly-coddled turns out best!
