Already quite modern in style, the ripe 2018 vintage has allowed the fruit character to really shine whilst remaining deliciously fresh and bright with a more typical touch of salinity and spritz on the finish.

Thanks to being almost completely surrounded by the Sèvre river, this 9-hectare estate benefits from a unique micro-climate and Pierre-Henri is able to select the best plot for each style of wine. To create a wine which best accentuates the vibrancy of Melon de Bourgogne (Melon Blanc) he chose ‘La Cantire’, a fully organic, north-facing plot with schist soil. Grapes were harvested in the cool of the night (again for maximum freshness) and cool macerated on their skins for 12 hours. Once pressed, fermentation was carried out using yeasts naturally present on the grape skins. Unlike the richer style of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie (which is bottled in the Spring after harvest), Vendange Nocturne is bottled in early December with no lees ageing and is naturally lower in alcohol (11%). Pierre-Henri’s decision to name the variety - Melon Blanc - on the label means the wine can only be classified as a Vin de France, even though it originates from one of the best sites in Muscadet Sèvre et Maine.

Hailing from the western Loire, this medium-bodied, fresh white wine pairs well with shellfish and seafood.
