Melon De Bourgogne

De Ponte Cellars

Dundee Hills Melon de Bourgogne 2015

Sparkling wine. Pale yellow, very good clarity. Excellent carbonation, pinpoint bubbles. Yeasty nose. Yeasty and malic flavors, toasty graham cracker finish, good crisp acidity throughout. Fairly dry. An interesting alternative to other sparklers out there. Methode champenoise, Oregon grapes. The Melon grapes are largely neutral here, so it’s all about the aging on the yeast. An artisanal take — 10 days ago

Beautiful wine, well balanced and elegant. A bit of oak from brief time in the barrel making a little more complex for a melon. One of the best muscadets I have ever had! @ Domaine Luneau-Papin — 13 days ago

Les Parcelles Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2017

What a great pairing with our seared scallops. The perfect balance of salinity, minerality, and lemony acidity. Aging sur lie gives it a creamy mouthfeel that really rocks. — 16 days ago

Clisson Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2014

I’m new to the Muscadet aging curve but this was very educational. Deep color, slight spritz at first and certainly put on weight from where I imagine it was in youth. Chenin/Pinot Gris weight if not a touch lighter. Should age a few bts of muscadet to understand this more. — 8 days ago
