2017 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie, Domaine la Haute Févrie, Loire

The domaine’s 27 hectares stretch across numerous terroirs, but this cuvée hails from younger vines (15 to 35 years old) which ripen early, on a gneiss-rich slope overlooking the river Sèvre. It’s hand harvested and aged for seven months on its lees. Slightly spritzy in the glass, as any good young Muscadet should be, with classic citrus aromas. The palate is feather-weight, with a modest 12 percent alcohol and electrifying acidity.
