Simply a special wine.

Flinty, grindingly mineral, almost crunchy, limey notes seem to be folded and folded again on top of each other until a beautiful smooth texture evolves and wraps up the whole; it's really quite special.

The vineyard lies on one of the best sites in Nantais at St Fiacre. Here the soils are layered with 'orthogneiss', a cracked mineral rich rock through which the vine roots weave and nourish the vine. 'Vieilles Vignes' is made from Nelly Marzellau's oldest 45 year old vines - a rarity for Muscadet where most are dug up after 40 years.

Made traditionally at this small estate, the grapes were hand-picked, lightly pressed to keep all the nuances and purity of flavour and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve aromas. The older vines need longer on their fine lees and so are not bottled until a year after harvest in October.
