2020 Philippe Guerin Melon Ambré De Macération - Loire Valley, France (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
This orange wine, made from Melon de Bourgogne (aka Muscadet) comes from the vineyards of Philippe Guerin, a 5th generation winemaker with 30 hectares of vines in Vallet, a small hamlet in Northwestern Loire Valley. It is lean and saline driven, with the bright acidity that is classic Muscadet. With very little fruit on the palate, it is all about the skin contact and texture, which makes it a great pick for orange wine lovers and newbies alike. Melon de Bourgogne famously pairs with oysters on the half shell but the orange iteration begs for something more stronger and substantial like mussels steamed in garlicy butter and herbs.
