V. & S. Perraud - Selection 2018 (vitt/white) : Golden Light on the Atlantic
The « historical » cuvée of the Perraud brothers, this white wine is 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 2018 vintage offers a very interesting roundness and dynamic structure with a zesty finish, which comes into play when served a bit warmer, around 11°C. A fantastic natural white wine at that price and one you might soon get addicted to!
The Sélection 2018 will be a perfect companion to fish with sauce (like cod in butter sauce), creamy cheese or poultry.
Priset gäller för 1 flaska på 75cl / Price is for one 75cl bottle.
