"One of a pair of wines named after the rock of the vineyard, this offers great fruitiness, crisp lemon and a mineral edge that balances with the wine's fresh character. It is a delicious wine, still developing, ready from late 2019." - Roger Voss
About the Wine:
"The Muscadet with the broadest shoulders in the Domaine de l'Ecu lineup, Orthogneiss is layered, complex and almost creamy but with a razor-edged acidity. A singular wine in a singlular group of wines."
"3 hectares parcel with 45-55 year old vines. Southwest-facing. Top soil is granulous and not very deep (30-50 cm). Sub-soil of orthogneiss, a metamorphosed igneous rock where minerals are arranged in bands."
"Organically farmed since 1975, biodynamic-demeter certified since 1998. Soil worked manually and yields are kept low. All grapes are hand harvested."
"Gravity fed with no use of pumps. Wild yeast fermentations with no racking of the must. Only 25 mg of sulfur added between alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Aged on the lees in underground vats for 15-18 months."
