What is necessary for a Muscadet to be labeled Sur Lie?

In order to label Muscadet as sur lie, the wine must originate from land qualifying for one of the three sub-appellations. Sur lie wines are aged on their lees over the winter, and are bottled directly off the fine lees (without filtering) between March 1 and November 30 of the year following the harvest. The process adds complexity, richness and a slight sparkle to the finished wines.
