Spring soil preparation has been performed in a traditional manner (earthing down and hoeing) throughout the entire estate since 2009. We treat and take care of the vines with natural preparations (no chemical products) and sow cover crops such as pulses and cereals at the end of summer, with close attention to the needs of each crop. We stimulate soil life with one or two applications of horn dung; (preparation 500) in spring and apply a horn silica (preparation 501) after bloom and before harvest if necessary.
Vines are short cut pruned (single guyot) during winter. Vine density is 6,500 plants per hectare.
Careful sorting is carried out in the vineyard by grape harvesters.
Grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press, strength and length of pressing is adapted to each vintage.
Spontaneous fermentation using only natural yeasts. Fermentation and maturation on lees in underground glass lined vats for seven months, without racking until bottling in sping time 2020.
Serve at 12˚C
Excellent as an aperitif with shellfish, fish in a sea salt crust, roasted fillet of sea bream, Asian cuisine, or fresh cheeses.
This terrifically stony wine was a real favorite. Plus, the delightful label depicting Original Sin is extremely appropriate – this wine is so pure that it seems to go back to the origins of the terroir. Beware though, don’t expect a bunch of fruit, here you are on a rock overlooking the sea. The nose smells intensely of stones and petroleum, delivering a racy personality. The very saline palate emphasizes this idea of licking a pebble beach. A dream Muscadet.
Le Monde des Vins. June 2017
This wine was selected to be served at the French Senate on Monday, March 19, 2018.
It has since been served throughout the year to the Senators. The Verger offers an excellent value for money: a concentrated and clear-cut Muscadet.
