Domaine de la Combe is based in Saint-Fiâcre, south-east of Nantes, right at the point where the mouth of the Loire River meets the Atlantic.  The estate was established in the 1950’s and sits on what is considered one of the best sites for producing Muscadet Sèvre et Maine.  Here the soils are layered with orthogneiss, a cracked, mineral-rich rock and flint, through which the vine roots weave and nourish the vines.  Made traditionally at this small estate, the Melon de Bourgogne grapes were hand-picked, lightly pressed to retain their delicacy and purity of flavour, and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve their aromas.  The wine was left on its fine lees until the following spring to add complexity and extra richness. 

Crisp, flinty notes with a hint of yeasty lees on the nose.  The palate has a lean acidity with a slight spritz and flavours of crisp green apple, combined with some savoury yet citrussy notes and a pleasingly yeasty finish. 

This is a wine which cries out for shellfish on ice, but would also work well with almost any grilled fish.
