From the makers of the 'Perle Bleue' Folle Blanche comes this superb value in Loire Valley Pink! The Chon family were originally Burgundian winegrowers during the mid-late 17th century before Mathurin Chon left for 'la Cote Atlantique' in 1719, no doubt with an armful of 'Melon de Bourgogne' cuttings, to set up among the Pays Nantaisat St. Julien de Concelles., Nearly three centuries later his descendants Gilbert Chon and Fils continue the family tradition with 60 hectares of vines on granite and schistous soils. From his plantings of Melon de Bourgogne, some planted during the 1930s, Jean-Gilbert Chon produces four styles of Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie: 'Ch. de la Jousseliniere', 'Ch Salmoniere', 'Clos de la Chapelle', and 'Prestige'. Viticulture and vinification are traditional, using glass/epoxy lined cement tanks; organic and biodynamic approaches are being considered.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
