Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Pale lemon-gold in the glass, Delhommeau’s Harmonie soars with salty and mineral-driven aromas of lemon oil, gunflint and briny oyster shells. Deep and balanced yet deliciously accessible for a young Muscadet, the Harmonie’s texture is satisfyingly broad and refreshing right out of the gate. Notes of grapefruit, Anjou pear, gooseberry and lemongrass mingle with impressions of salty sea air and oyster shell minerality. Long and savory, the wine finishes extraordinarily fresh, vivacious and clean, and begs you to slurp another Belon oyster or Littleneck clam, or take another bite of Dungeness crab or sole in a beurre blanc sauce.
