Domaine Batard Langelier 'Polaris' Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2021
Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, Loire Valley, France Grape(s): Melon de Bourgogne Winemaker: Jeremie & Claire Batard-Langelier Drinks Best: Now - 2 Years
Husband and wife team Jeremie and Claire Batard-Langelier are dedicated to producing wines that express Muscadet’s terroir while also introducing a new perspective of this classic region. The estate is nearly 60 acres planted mostly with Melon de Bourgogne and a small portion of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Chemical fertilizers were abandoned in the vineyard in 1995, and in 2014 they began the conversion to full on organic farming. ‘Polaris,’ their flagship wine, is sourced from granitic soils whose elevated pH promotes high acidity and layered aromas and flavors that can develop for years. A fresh, delicate nose introduces flavors of tart lemon and lime with asalty mineral-drivenfinish.
Pairings: Seared scallops served over lemon and parmesan risotto
