Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes

 Tasted by cweiss on 11/7/2013: China King, Drinking very nicely with considerable depth making up for no longer having prickly acidity (but has plenty). (680 views)
 Tasted by MikeATL on 8/19/2013 flawed bottle: TN: LDM Young and Old: Corked and oxidized. (986 views)
 Tasted by MikeATL on 9/30/2012: Older Loires: Light gold color and the honey and preserved lemon additions to the expected saline and mineral elements show right away that it isn't a baby any more. There is still enough fruit to balance the acidity, but it doesn't pop with the vibrancy of a recent bottle of the '97. A good, but not great example of an aged Muscadet, this bottle suggests that it might be time to start drinking these up. (1491 views)
 Tasted by 14Frimaire on 6/10/2012: No premox here: just a beautiful, beautiful wine. From the first stash I ever saved. (1333 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 1/27/2012: Brown bagged bottle as a starter at a dinner for mature high-class Bordeaux. Guesses included Haut Brion Blanc. Long finish. (1395 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 9/10/2010: Drinking very nicely. (1385 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 1/26/2010: Seemed mildly oxidized but still quite enjoyable. (1458 views)

Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine

Muscadet (mus-ka-DAY) is a region in the western part of the Loire valley, near the city of Nantes. White wines from Muscadet are made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. They tend to be light in color and body, and are intensely mineral driven. They are thought to be a perfect complement to raw oysters from the nearby coast. Muscadets are gleefully paired, though, with any fresh shellfish or other seafood.

There are a couple of appellations in Muscadet, the best of which is considered to be Muscadet de Sevre et Maine. And the best bottles from that appellation are aged sur-lie, or on the lees, the musty mix of yeasts and other post-fermentation solids. This aging provides flavor complexity that can be missing in other bottles.
