What is a Muscadet cru?
Situated south of Nantes, at the gateway of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine vineyard, the La Haye-Fouassière vintage has the West-most position of the Sèvre et Maine wines. It groups together the La Haye Fouassière and Vertou vines.
Its terroir is characterised by not very deep siliceous, stony soils, sloping along the hills of the Sèvre river.
The subsoil is made up of metamorphic rock of mainly orthogneiss.
The La Haye-Fouassière muscadet vintages are both taut and elegant. The bouquet evokes flavours of ripe citrus fruits sometimes almost crystallised, notes of pineapple and yellow peach, the expressive feel in the mouth is both structured and full-bodied. It reveals a mineral stony, smoked character with a fresh finish with minty notes.
The La Haye-Fouassière muscadet vintages present an ageing potential of 10 years and will delight Great white wine lovers.
They go wonderfully well with haute cuisine notably high-quality fish, white meats, cheeses.
