View From the Cellar

    (Pierre Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Le L d'Or) A polished and rather soapy nose here, with more evocative fruit than in the younger wines right now, peach in particular. It holds a lovely texture, from the warmth of the vintage perhaps, but still has a very stylish presence. The palate gives notes of spices and a bready richness too. This is one of the most impressive and seductive wines so far; I find it enticing, although purists might reject its rather alluring fruit. It finishes up with an incredible richness and mineral-coating of the palate. Delicious, and should do well in the cellar.

    (Pierre Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Le L d'Or) A beautiful nose here, hugely expressive, with fabulously open fruit with a ripe and sweet but very fresh character. Great style, lovely purity, gentle and warm and rounded. It has some stony acidity although it is not quite so well defined as some of the other cuvées - the effect of a warmer vintage, perhaps? Rich but it still has a lovely style and freshness. Impressive.

    (Luneau-Papin Muscadet-Sevre-et-Maine sur lie "L D'Or") This is like drinking Champagne without the bubbles. Maybe a little rounder than the 2002 or 2004 but still jagged yet just as intricately detailed as all Pierre Luneau's wines are. Flavors of fresh stream, wet rocks, lime zest and more rocks. The texture is lovely on this wine and this was gone before I could scream "MUSCADET" at the top of my lungs. Will be socking away some in the cellar.
