V. & S. Perraud - Selection 2020 (vitt/white) : Golden Light on the Atlantic
The return in our selection of the « historical » cuvée of the Perraud brothers will come as a very good news to its many lovers!
Made with the traditional Muscadet wine grape called « Melon de Bourgogne » in the underground glass tanks also traditional and specific to the Muscadet wine region, it features the distinctive qualities of good Muscadet wines (dryness, freshness, minerality with a slight iodine touch) and enriches it with roundness and aromatic complexity (hazelnuts, white flowers, white peaches, green melon).
The 2020 vintage is well-rounded, with a subtle inner dynamic that seems to drive in circles and always fall back on its feet, offering an endlessly pleasant experience. One of the best Muscadet out there in our humble opinion, at an even humbler price for this great natural white.
The Sélection 2020 can be paired with fish, seafood, salads, fresh goat cheese, cold cuts.
Priset gäller för 1 flaska på 75cl / Price is for one 75cl bottle.
