Bonnet Huteau Muscadet Sur Lie, Les Gautronnires, Domaine Bonnet Huteau.
Bonnet Huteau Muscadet Sur Lie is a super-fresh, bone dry white with a delicate floral nose. Having aged for 6 months “sur lie” the wine’s suppleness is complemented by an arresting vital acidity and minerally character. It is full of flavour, there is minerality, fruit and perhaps a little aniseed. An exceptional wine and great value.
A firm favourite, it never seems to hang around long at home! What struck us first was the bottle, not a traditional embossed type more an unassuming burgundy shape and a very smart modern label. When we tasted the wine the penny dropped: this really is not like your generic Muscadet.
As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
