Monday, December 24, 2012 - A very decent Muscadet and good value too. Paired perfectly with some top-notched tinned seafoody Spanish tapas, I thought this was a notch better than the last bottle I had. Unusually for a Muscadet at this price range, I preferred it when it was not absolutely chilled. At just below room temperature and having had the benefit of some air in the glass, this showed a very classic nose of wet stone and a touch of seashell scents mingling amidst some white fruit and lime aromas. The palate was marked by lots of fresh lemony acidity, citrussy flavours of limes and grapefruit, and a micely minerally end, which all helped to make it a lovely match for the seafood. Simple, a bit short, but very decent stuff indeed, and I would have no hesitation recommending it as a wine to be enjoyed young over a simple meal.
