Overview of the Wine
The soil in Vallet is more heterogenous with varying depths of sand and sandy clay soil atop mica schist with spots of gabbro and inclusions of granite. Château de la Ragotière’s 2015 Vallet has a delicate floral element that accompanies a lovely austerity. An attractive hint bit of bitterness in the finish adds to its appeal. Long and precise, it cuts like a laser.

100 % Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet)

This is an exceptional Muscadet. It still has plenty of freshness along with a tight, mineral texture and lightly smoky flavors. The concentration gives the wine richness while it remains bone dry and crisp.
