Tasting Notes

From 40 year old Melon de Bourgogne grapes planted on a bedrock of granite that's covered with gravel and silt. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in underground concrete vats. This is a dense, mineral-driven white wine that comes from coastal France. The main focus at Domaine de L'Epinay is old vines and low yields. Their proximity to the Atlantic ocean allow for cool breezes. This maritime climate is ideally suited for Muscadet.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Melon de Bourgogne

Muscadet

The coolest (temperature-wise) of the Loire Valley appellations, this region is most famous for its bracingly dry, seafood-friendly whites. Made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape (virtually unheard of in the rest of the world), these refreshing wines are idyllic partners for oysters or mussels.

Loire

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
