Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its clear color with green reflections offers a nose rather greedy and discreet, on the pear in syrup and jasmine. On the palate, this wine presents a round and gourmand attack. Final on the fruit.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Melon de Bourgogne. This lynchpin of the Muscadet appellations exists only in France, and owes its name to the rounded shape of its leaves.
Domain and appellation
Château de l'Hyvernière
This castle of the XVth century was completely destroyed by a fire during the Revolution and rebuilt to be purchased in 1922 by Auguste Sautejeau, who transformed it into a vast vine-yard. In 2007, it was integrated into the Family of Chateaux and Domaines Castel.
- Terroir: This area of 58 hectares, located in the towns of Chapel Heulin and Pallet, about thirty kilometers from Nantes, is based on sandy soils of clay, sandstone, schist and mica schist.
- Vinification: Pressing is carried out at a low pressure, followed by a fermentation at 16 ° C for 24 days. The wine is then aged on lees for six months.
