Chateau de la Ragotiere Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2022


16/20 Jancis Robinson – “Certified Terra Vitis (since 2002). Screwcap. 45 hl/ha from 50-year-old vines (and older). 100% Melon de Bourgogne on a bedrock of mica schist. Underground cement tanks. No malolactic fermentation. 10 months on the lees. A cloud of perfume hovering above this glass! Freesia. Lightly zesty framework, just a little more pointed than the Les Schistes but with a softer, more floaty mid palate. Seems to hover above the tongue, draped in lemony gossamer. Finishes with a little sharp tug of citrus acidity. (TC)”

More Information

Les Freres Couillaud purchased the Domaine de la Ragotiere in 1978 on the western fringe of the Loire Valley. Planted to schist & mica schist soils, the white grapes of the appellation of Muscadet are known as Melon de Bourgogne, or simply Melon. Melon produces high acid, fresh and bright whites that are aged on lees (sue lie, pronounced “sir lee”) for extended periods to add texture and approachability at a young age. Ragotiere Muscadets are the perfect match with shell fish, fresh, natural oysters particularly but will complement any seafood or white meats.

Les Freres Couillaud Domaine de la Ragotiere Muscadet is a great value classically made Muscadet from Sevre-et-Maine in the western Loire valley.
