Named after the producer's winery, this wine is a blend of fruit from different parts of the appellation. A little age has rounded out the wine, giving richness as well as a bite of acidity at the end. Although ready to drink, the wine will be even better from 2021.
La Moynerie wine expresses all the density as well as the aromatic mineral and pureness of each soil. The nose reminds of green lemon and citrus. The palate is vivid and perfectly sharp.
This wine is vinified and aged in stainless-steel vats, foudres and demi-muids for 10 to 12 months on fine lees. It is a very dense wine with great aromatic purity, offering superb minerality and saline notes.
About Domaine Michel Redde & Fils:
Wine has been running through the veins of the Redde family for almost 400 years. Michel Redde can trace his family's winemaking origins in Pouilly-sur-Loire back to 1630. When he and his wife Simone took up the baton, they expanded the property considerably, buying new vineyard parcels and building La Moynerie, a tasting cellar that attracts visitors travelling on the N7 trunk road. Their son Thierry expanded further in 2001 when he converted the chai into a three-storey, gravity-flow winery. In the vineyards, Michel Redde, his son, and grandsons Sébastien and Romain grow Sauvignon Blanc in the Pouilly-Fumé appellation and Chasselas in the Pouilly-sur-Loire appellation. The 42 hectares of vines are tended with meticulous care and the property is gradually moving over to organic practices. The clay-chalk soils give their wines texture and elegance. Domaine Michel Redde et Fils has an affinity with the distinctive features of each terroir and showcases these to perfection in its single parcel wines.
