Muscadet Sur Lie, ‘Cuveé du Printemps’, Orchidees Maisons de Vin

Muscadet Sur Lie ‘Cuveé du Printemps’

Origin: Loire, France

This 15 hectare domaine is owned by François Bonhomme and is planted solely with 'Melon', or more familiarly, Muscadet. Anthony Byrne Fine Wines has been working with François and his family for over 20 years.

Vinification

The word Printemps (Spring) installs an impression of the wine, the winery pick the grapes earlier than the prestige wines to ensure an attractive white with crisp acidity that is ideal with seafood. This maintains the perception of ‘Muscadet’ ensuring satisfaction. The wine is then aged on its lees, or sediment, for six months to impart more body to the wine. The grapes are selected from François’s finest vineyards.

Sauvignon Touraine Les Chandelieres, , Orchidees Maisons de Vin

Sauvignon Touraine Les Chandelieres

Origin: Touraine, Loire, France

The Loire Valley, France's third largest wine-producing region, represents, from the Atlantic to the Centre region, the point of balance between sweetness and freshness, tradition and modernity. These harmonious blends, favoured by a generally temperate climate and remarkably varied and rich terroirs, have given rise to the greatest diversity of wines in the world, with an unequalled diversity and expression of grape varieties. This Touraine reveals notes of exotic fruits and ripe fruits typical of the Appellation.

Vinification

The fermentation is carried out at a low temperature in thermoregulated vats and protected by oxygen. The temperatures are mastered between 16 and 18°C to develop the delicate aromas of Sauvignon and to conserve all of the grapes crispness and fruit. Four to ten months maturing in stainless steel vats provides the wine with stability and balance.
