2020 Vivanterre 'MSM' White Blend
Grapes come from the sub region of Vallet in the Muscadet appellation. The vineyard is planted on gabbro metamorphic rock, which is slow cooled magma that is rich in magnesium and iron. This 100% Melon de Bourgogne is sourced from the vineyards of Romain Petitou. The vineyard is in its third year of biodynamic conversion.
The grapes were picked the first week of September and undergo direct press before immediately being placed in glass globes that are buried underground. Both the natural fermentation and the elevage takes place in these tanks. The grapes are sourced from the domaine of Romain Petitiou and the elevage and bottling also took place at his domaine, under the careful eye and tutelage of Patrick Bouju and Justine Loiseau The wine stayed on the lees until it was ready to be bottled in March 2021. No added sulfur
