Bel Abord is a superb vineyard plot facing the village of Saint Fiacre and overlooking the river Maine. The gneiss bedrock, the vineyard’s orientation facing the rising sun and Muscadet’s unique Melon variety bring freshness, minerality and intensely fruity notes to this Muscadet, along with good body and a nice saline finish.
