Classic fresh and zesty, clean and lean Muscadet.
Domaine de la Combe (formerly Domaine les Grands Presbytères) in the village of Saint-Fiâcre, is nestled in the cradle of the Muscadet appellation between the two rivers of Sèvre and Maine.The area is considered one of the best sites for Muscadet Sèvre et Maine.
The vineyard is run by Pierre-Henri Gadais who returned to his family's domaine in 2016 to take over from his father, Christophe. Passionate about the expression of terroir and protecting the environment, Pierre-Henri is in the process of converting the vineyard to fully organic viticulture, aiming for full certification by 2021.
The wine is crisp with flinty notes and a hint of yeasty lees on the nose. The palate has a lean acidity with a slight spritz, with some bready and almost savoury citrus aromas.
This is a white wine destined to be drunk with shellfish on ice, or almost any grilled fish. It would work nicely with soft cheeses or goats cheese.
