The delicate aromas suggest a complex and accomplished wine.
The opening is gentle, and the palate presents beautiful minerality that gives this Muscadet wonderful finesse, the crystalline rocks of the terroir are echoed in this balanced and subtle wine.
Despite the passing years, Oxymore retains the characteristic freshness of Nantais wines.
The finish is long and develops discreet pineapple aromas.
A terroir wine!

Happy Days by Samuel Beckett
An absurd and serious play with touches of humour.
It suggests that we should enjoy every experience in life, despite the sometimes cruel nature of existence.
A serious play, with an edge, just like our cuvée.
Mainly siliceous clay soil. Gabbro parcel on L’Inlière
On the compound subsoil of Gabbro, a greenish-black igneous rock brings minerality to the wine and gives this cuvée excellent ageing potential; the terroir expresses itself fully with the passing of time.
100% Melon de Bourgogne. 40-year-old vines.
Yield: 45 hl /ha
Very good healthy grapes and excellent conditions for harvest.
Pneumatic pressing following by gentle cold settling. Temperature-controlled fermentation between 16°C and 20°C in glass-lined concrete tanks.
Racking on fine lees with stirring (bringing the lees to the surface gives body to the wine and promotes the development of complex aromas).
Some people still believe that “an excellent Muscadet” is an oxymoron! What a shame they haven’t yet tasted Oxymore. This wine can very often be poetic and surprising.
