Description:
Clisson, south of Nantes, is Muscadet’s prettiest town with its Breton influences and romantic Italian feel. This wine is made from old vines on granite and harvested by hand. Two years’ ageing on lees result in a creamy texture with notes of smokiness, candied citrus and sweet spices. Ideal for ageing and pairing with food.
