Famille Bougrier, Chateau du Jaunay, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2015, Loire, France
Tasting Note: Muscadet famously pairs well with seafood and this Muscadet is no exception and is slightly ahead of the pack.
Medium-intensity lemon in color and slightly petillant, this wine has a nose of green apple, green pear, honeysuckle and lemon citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine expresses flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and some faint accompanying notes of yeast.
The Muscadet completes with a medium finish and is refreshing in body and texture.
Bottle Note: Chateau du Jaunay is located in the heart of Muscadet Sevre & Maine vineyard in le Landreau. This great dry white wine offers a unique style with a fine and delicate minerality. Beautiful tension on the palate followed by hints of flower, melon and lime, that finishes with a refreshing crispness. To be served chilled (10-12°C) with all fishes, seafood and do not hesitate to match it with a great goat cheese. We wish you a great pleasure tasting our wines.
