Domaine Haute Fevrie éClipse 2021

This wine showcases the pure expression of Melon de Bourgogne, a grape best known for its role in the crisp Muscadet wines of the Loire Valley. Hand-harvested and carefully transported in perforated crates, the grapes undergo a respectful vinification process. Direct pressing of the whole bunches ensures a clean and pure juice, followed by settling for 18 to 24 hours. The fermentation is a slow and natural process, taking 3 to 4 weeks with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperatures between 18 and 20°C. It's then aged on lees for seven months, gaining texture and complexity.

For the "Méthode Traditionnelle" distinction, the wine is bottled in May or June to start secondary fermentation, followed by extended lees ageing on lattes for at least 9 months, varying with the vintage from 11 to 24 months. This period enhances the wine's complexity and finesse. After meticulous riddling and disgorging, it's finished with a dosage of 7 to 9 grams of sugar per litre.


3.8 / 5.0750 ml@Wix Kyiv Office · Classy bubbles Vol. 3

This wine features a charming bouquet of citrus, lemon, cream, and shells, with a fresh and juicy profile enhanced by a nice yeast influence. It's medium-light and easy-going, with a pleasant touch of cider. Overall, the wine is quite nice and memorable, though it lacks persistence, which is understandable given its style. It's approachable and enjoyable.

Domaine Haute Fevrie

Domaine de la Haute Fevrie lies nestled in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation, a stone's throw from the city of Nantes in the Loire Valley of France. The estate's story begins over a century ago and is currently under the passionate stewardship of Sébastien Branger, a direct descendant of the founding family. Branger, with a deep respect for tradition and the environment, has embraced organic viticulture to express the true character of his 26.6 hectares of vineyards.
