DOMAINE ANDRÉ VATAN SANCERRE MAULIN BÈLE ROSÉ, 2020
"Domaine André Vatan knocks it out of the park with this coral-hued, elegant, food-friendly rosé, with nuanced summer fruit aromas, mouthfeel, mouth-watering acidity and dry, zesty finish. Yes to seafood platters, grilled shellfish, seared tuna, herb-roast monkfish or bream on the bone."
DOMAINE PIERRE LUNEAU-PAPIN MUSCADET SEVRE-ET-MAINE SUR LIE PIERRES BLANCHES, 2019
"Muscadet solo Melon de Bourgogne grape hails from Burgundy, where its sibling Chardonnay reigns, and this top-class version from a gneiss-soiled, organically farmed single vineyard (planted in 1954) reclaims that heritage. Aged 10 months on its lees, this wine has aroma of butter fudge, toasted hazelnut and baked apples, and a creamy, glycerol texture. Pair with scallop carpaccio, roast langoustine or lobster."
