Melon de Bourgogne is the varietal from which the Loire Valley’s great Muscadets are made. Our Melon de Bourgogne was harvested from a single vineyard in Prince Edward County in early October 2014. The juice was extracted using a long, slow press cycle for gentle extraction and then fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature (12 to 14°C) to preserve its wonderful freshness, acidity and stony qualities. For the first time, the wine was aged on full lees in neutral 500L oak barrels for five months prior to bottling. Classic pairings would be briny shellfish… particularly delicious with East coast oysters.
Showcasing the classic minerality of Prince Edward County, the 2014 Melon de Bourgogne shows bright lemon-lime citrus notes on the nose. On the palate, it has razor sharp acidity and a subtle lees mid-palate. Refreshing, crisp finish. Classic pairings would be briny shellfish… particularly delicious with East coast oysters.
