Domaine du Bois Bruley Gros Plant du Pays Nantais Sur Lie 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £8 from a shop in Oxfordshire [www.peterosbornewine.co.uk]. Gros Plant du Pays Nantais is an appellation created in 2012,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for dry white wines made of the folle blanche grape [known as gros plant locally] from the same area as the more popular Muscadet appellation ie 23 communes south-east of the town of Nantes.Domaine du Bois Bruley is one of four estates owned and run by the Chereau-Carre concern.Sur Lie means that the wine was left on its lees for some months. I started the bottle last night with my supper of baked cod. It is a bone dry wine and the main impresion is how tangy and acidic it is but there is very little body or structure behind this. However it was refreshing and a good match for the fish.
