Hugues Brochard Muscadet Sèvre & Maine Cru Clisson.

Alcohol: 12.0% White from France, Loire Year: 2016

Complex nose with a blend of candied citrus fruit, yellow-fleshed greengages, pastry and smoky notes. Lovely minerality. Distinctive on the palate which shows a lovely balance of acidity and fat. Fleshy and long-lingering on the mid-palate with a mouthwatering, saline finish.

About Producer Nerdy stuff Serving

Hugues Brochard is a distinguished fourth-generation winemaker renowned for his work in the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. His vineyards are located near Clisson, less than 100 kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean, benefiting from the oceanic climate and the south-facing slopes along the Sèvre and Maine rivers. These conditions, coupled with the age of the vines—many of which are over 40 years old—contribute to the production of elegant and complex wines with significant aging potential.

Vineyard

The vines grow on the south-facing slopes of the Sèvre and Maine rivers in the commune of Maisdon sur Sèvre on the southernmost part of Armorican Massif. The Cru Clisson's vines are over 40 years old. This plot of vines, covering an area of one hectare, thrives in a soil of clay combined with smooth pebbles on a granite beddrock, whose good drainage qualities endow the wine with superb minerality.

Fermentation

The grapes of natural richness, picked by hand, undergo a traditionnal vinification process.

Maturation

At least two years' ageing on the lees helps make this an outstanding wine combining aromatic complexity, fleshiness and elegance.
