This French white is a modern style wine and has a fruity character that shines through loud and clear. Yet at the same time it remains deliciously fresh and bright with a more typical salinity and spritz on the finish.

From a 9 hectare estate which, due to being almost surrounded by the Sèvre river benefits from an unique micro-climate, Pierre-Henri is able to select the best plot for each style of wine. To create a wine which best accentuates the vibrancy of Melon de Bourgogne (Melon Blanc) he chose ‘La Cantire’, a fully organic north facing plot of Schist. Grapes were harvested in the cool of the night (again for maximum freshness) and cool macerated on skins for 12 hours. Once pressed, fermentation was carried out using yeasts naturally present on the grape skins. Unlike the richer style of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie (which is bottled in the Spring after harvest) Vendange Nocturne is bottled in early December with no lees ageing and is naturally lower in alcohol (11%). Pierre-Henri’s decision to name the varietal - Melon Blanc - on the label means the wine is classified as Vin de France, although it originates from one of the best sites in Muscadet Sèvre et Maine.

Food Pairing:
As this wine is from the Western Loire, this medium bodied fresh white pairs well with shellfish and seafood.
