Complemen'Terre Potion Mama
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Melon de Bourgogne, Folle Blanche
Both Marion and Manu of Complemen'Terre were born in Muscadet and have been around vineyards their whole lives. After a long time away working for winemakers in New Zealand and Chile, they settled in 2013 in the village of Le Pallet and work now with three grape varieties: Melon de Bourgogne, Folle Blanche and Gamay which are all vinified by parcel with the aim of showing off the varied volcanic terroir of the region.
Potion Mama is Melon de Bourgogne from the Croix Moriceau and NoLem plots, with a little Folle Blanche. Made in the pet nat style, but held in bottle longer than usual, this is a complex sparkling wine with preserved lemon, toast, herb and mineral notes.
