Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its light straw color with green highlights offers an open nose of white flowers and citrus. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, full and distinctive with smoky notes and a tense finish on a mineral touch.
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 15th century has been completely destroyed by a fire during the Revolution and rebuilt to be purchased in 1922 by Auguste Sautejeau, who transformed it into an enormous vineyard. In 2007, it has been acquired by the Castel family.
- Terroir: This area of 58 hectares placed in the towns of Chapelle Heulin and Pallet, about thirty kilometers from Nantes, is located on sandy soils made of clay, sandstone, schist and mica schist.
- Vinification: Pressing is carried out at a low pressure. Then the must is unmoved for 7 days. This step is followed by a fermentation at 15 ° C for 24 days. The wine ages in stainless steel and concrete tanks on thin dregs for 6 months, subjected to a regular bâtonnage (the lees set at the top of the tank is mixed with the must). The bâtonnage is bringing finesse to the wine.
