Producer

The vineyards of the Domaine des Herbauges are a part of the estate of the Chateau de la Senaigerie, bordering the shores of the beautiful Lac de Grandlieu. Set up in 1864, it is now run and owned by Jérôme Choblet who is committed to creating wines of the highest quality using traditional French winemaking techniques. His Muscadet sur lie is one of intense, almost exotic fruit and clearly shows the character and quality so often missing in this region.
Tasting Notes
Grown at Domaine Herbauges, this `old vine` Chardonnay is super fresh and lively with a lovely twist of lemon acidity. A beautifully unoaked and fresh Chardonnay which is balanced and dry. The palate is full of white peach and apple flavours and develops exotic fruits such as pineapple, banana and quince on the palate. A good structure with a fresh acidity leads into a lingering finish.
Food
Seafood platter and oysters. Great as an aperitif or with fish and poultry such as goose in sauce.
