Biodynamic origins allow this wine to express the beauty of its terroir in a lively and mineral style. More info

The Médolia cuvée comes from the Muscadet region. It is a made from forty-year-old Melon de Bourgogne vines (local varietal par excellence) grown on two, fine terroirs. The soil here is characterised by mica-schist and green rock. The yields are limited to 30 hectolitres per hectare and the domain's farming methods are certified organic and biodynamic. This means that synthetic products and herbicides are banned, the soil is ploughed, and the grapes are harvested in whole bunches.
Once in the winery, the fruit is both vinified and matured in ovoid, terracotta containers to preserve the vivacity of the varietal. Wild yeasts instigate the fermentation to let the terroir express itself. The wine is then matured on lees for a year.
In the glass we find a pale golden wine with a fresh, floral, and mineral. Its palate is sharp and mineral, meaning this cuvée can be enjoyed soon with salty dishes or green vegetables.

Vin de France Médolia Bonnet-Huteau (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Plateau de fruits de mer, Quiche aux blettes, Terrine d'asperges froide et mayonnaise maison.
