Chateau La Noë
Muscadet de Sevre-et-Maine
The Château La Noë estate, an 80-hectare area of land located in Vallet, France, was founded in 1878. They are known for their long history of consistency in their product, which may be unsurprising when you learn that they grow only one grape varietal, “Melon de Bourgogne”. Named after the round, melon-like shape of its leaves, it is from this grape that Chateau La Noë creates their Muscadet. The quality of the Muscadet is attributed to the exceptional soil, called the Armorican Massif, that contains a large variety of crystalline rocks.
With a floral scent on the nose, a refreshing balance on the palate, and a fruit-forward finish, this Muscadet is a testament to the precision and dedication it takes for a winery to garner a reputation of consistency.
This wine is made with the single vineyard “clos du Ferre”, one the most famous single vineyards in Muscadet. It is located in the Sevre et Maine appellation, indicative of higher quality wines, which require the aging of the wines on lies, giving more depth, complexity, and sometimes a very light effervescence to the product.
