Ample, powerful, concentrated and full-bodied, with aromas of poached pear, vineyard peach, ripe citrus fruit, honey and quince, Clisson’s Muscadets generally exhibit higher levels of alcohol. Produced from extremely ripe grapes, they require very long maturing, from twenty-four to thirty-six months.
Clisson’s vines grow in patches on knolls that rise from a landscape of prairies and farmland in the southern part of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. The area is open and well ventilated, with coarse soils of sand and pebbles that offer excellent drainage and low fertility. The subsoil is mostly composed of identical “Clisson granite” parent rock, a particularity that can be attributed to the presence of a nearby fault line. The fractured parent rock allows roots to run deep.
