The Taste of Muscadet with Pierre Jean Sauvion from Chateau du Cleray
This show was published 07 November 2014
The first wine is the Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2013 - a fresh, clean, crisp and citrusy Muscadet. Pierre Jean tells us how he uses dry ice to protect the grapes and the wine from oxidation during the whole process - from picking the berries to the beginning of the fermentation. The wine is also chaptalised in order to prolong the fermentation and develop more complexity to the wine. We also talk about how the soils affect the taste and aromas of the wine.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
