100% Melon de Bourgogne. Beautiful shiny, golden yellow colour. Smoked aromas with candied dry fruit on the nose. The mouth shows a powerful wine – very round with excellent attack.

About This Wine...

The wine

From organic vines which average over 50 years old, the sandy Granit de Clisson soil gives us a rich, powerful wine, where the fruit dominates the minerality.

“Lifted floral aromas, precise rich pear fruits and a delightful cleansing minerality” John Wilson, The Irish Times, 29th April 2017

“Concentrated dried apple aromas, intensified by white pepper and salt, followed by a broad, mineral palate of real energy yet still has a light texture. Drink 2017-2026” Highly Recommended, Decanter June 2017 – on the 2013 vintage.

The winery

Les Bêtes Curieuses is Jérémie Huchet’s joint venture with another of the Western Loire’s most dynamic producers, Jérémie Mourat. Together they have identified some of the region’s most interesting terroirs and gradually begun to buy up parcels of some of the Cru Communaux; Clisson, Gorges, Château Thébaud and Goulaine. Like Clos les Montys the vineyards are farmed organically and are generally made up of very old vines (50 years old for Clisson). Clisson is essentially a granite
based vineyard and as such there is a tremendous sense of freshness allied to the natural salinity of wines from this area. The grapes are directly pressed and then fermented in underground tanks where the wine spends two years on its fine lees. The quality of these wines is comparable to the top wines of Chablis and should be automatic choices for any wine lover.
