Wine of the Week - Domaine les Quatres Routes Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie

A classic pairing with raw shellfish of all sorts, Muscadet can also make an ideal partner with richer dishes. With its bracing acidity, fried food and fresh cheeses can also be on the menu when you have open a bottle of this Domaine des Quatres Routes Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie.

Vinified entirely of the Melon de Bourgogne varietal and aged on the lees for six months prior to bottling, Eric Poiron’s Muscadet is clean, careful, and zippy with a bright autolytic texture to balance it out. They began growing and producing wine in the early 1800s and over the past two centuries have increased their vineyard holdings from the original 1.2 hectares to its current 39 hectares. As always, the taste of the salt spray sings in this wine.
