2018 Philippe Chevarin La Justice
The fruit for ‘La Justice’ is Melon de Bourgogne (Melon is the grape that produces Muscadet) and it all comes from one single plot close to Philippe’s cellar in the village of Oudon.
The fruit jumps out of the glass, the palate is textured layers with a brininess and lashings of miner laity from the schist soils. A classic match for Melon de Bourgogne is Oysters, and there is nothing better than freshly shucked and a glass of this. It would also pair beautifully with Moules Frites.
