In 2017, Jacques was hit by the dangerous frosts that took a toll on vineyards throughout the Western Loire region, but particularly around the village of Oudon where Jacques lives.
He therefore had to combine his crop of Melon de Bourgogne from his Moulin vineyard with some grapes from Johan Chasse from nearby Saint-Herblon. Nevertheless, despite the terrible year this wine turned out to be quite exceptional. It has beautiful mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish.
Jacques does not add any sulphur to this wine!
