Pour L`Histoire, Domaine Menard Gaborit

Domaine Ménard Gaborit
Product Code: MG02ZZWC

Tasting Notes

The colour is a bright yellow with shining reflections. The discreet nose reveals itself with aeration, unveiling scents of ripe fruits, quince and zest. In the mouth, the slightly effervescent attack gives way to a remarkable balance marked by its elegance, where sour fruits brighten the more mineral notes.

About this product +

Producer >

Pauline and Francois Menard returned from gaining experience in Burgundy to run the family vineyards in 2019. The family domaine is perched on the rocky soils at the highest point in Sevre et Maine. Converting to organics, the couple's practices in the vineyards focus on natural patterns, using oils and biodynamic preparations to reduce copper and bring life back to the soil. In their own words, the terroir driven wines they produce 'are a product of the generations of men and women who have left their mark and over two centuries of local history and evolution of the grape growing and winemaking processes.' Not 'simply' Melon Blanc, these wines capture the parentage of this variety (Pinot Noir and Gouet Blanc) and are expressions of site driven by low yielding, older vines. We are excited to represent such quality from this Atlantic region.

Viticulture >

45 year old vines. Selecion of our best terroirs, elaborated following a blind tasting made by the family members. Short prunning. Certified Organic. Plough soils (spring plough with discs and blades) No synthetic products are used in the vineyard.

Winemaking >

Pneumatic pressing. Cold racking of the must. Wine nourished and matured on its lees during 10 months of fermentation in underground concrete tanks covered with glass tiles, typical of the Nantes vineyard.
