Domaine de la Fruitiere 2016 Les Vignes Blanches - White Wine

White Wine by Domaine de la Fruitiere from Loire, France - regions. Domaine de la Fruitiere farms over 40 hectares and produces both Muscadet Sevre et Maine as well as Vin de Pays from grapes such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Regardless of the varietal, the vines are planted on rock, and in most cases, sheer cliffs of rock through whichthe roots have to bury for meters for any hydric source. The vines, and the wines, are fed by water that is a wash in wet rocko bury for meters for any hydric source. The vines, and the wines, are fed by water that is a wash in wet rock. It's not a big shock that the wines smell and taste more like rock and minerals than fruit or flowers. Combine this with the cold Atlantic breezes and you've got an amazing cool climate, high cut, precise bottle of white wine. The Lieubeau family owns the domaine and takes great care to vinify the wines according to exposition, density of granite, and harvest date. Domaine de la Fruitiere is certified Terra Vitis (a rarity in Muscadet) and keeps yields as low as possible to produce wines that express the varietal and not just acid. These are delicious, vibrant wines that are easily among the best values in the portfolio. read more
