"The Monnieres–Saint Fiacre vineyard is situated in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. It is bordered by two rivers and its confluents: to the North by the Sèvre and to the southeast by the Maine, in a picturesque landscape of hills dotted with windmills. The vineyard is planted on a subsoil of gneiss covered by a fine top-soil of sandy limestone, and the constant winds in this site help keep the vines aerated. The resulting wine has subtle bitterness and a touch of refreshing citrus that can take you through the whole meal, from apéritif to cheese. It is perfectly suited for fish." —importer
"I had the deep and profund 2013 Monnières Saint Fiacre as a sample from the concrete egg. It is a rich, complex, and impressively persistent Muscadet with tropical flavors and floral aromas on the nose and a terrifically fresh citrus taste and a deep mineral structure. I can't wait to taste this wine when bottled again, although this won’t be the case before summer 2016. Until then, this will remain on its lees and gain further complexity." —Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
