(Pierre Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Le L d'Or) Superb definition on the nose here, there is fruit but with a very direct style. Beautiful intensity. Almost a dried-fruit character to it. The charm continues on the palate, which shows some polished fruit as suggested, with that gently dried, concentrated quality, with a fine seam of minerals and acid coming in very gently behind. A much greater sense of austerity here; this is a wine more likely to satisfy the purists.
(Pierre Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Le L d'Or) This has a youthful and stony nose. There follows a very convincing style on the palate though, full and rather precise. Imbued as it is with sweet lemon-sherbet fruit, this is still very clearly a young wine at the moment. It has an enticing acid core, but despite the robust structure it maintains a balanced feel rather than being overly firm. Another impressive vintage, and one in need of the cellar.
(Pierre Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie Le L d'Or) Largely a granite terroir for this cuvée. This has a great, ripe, open nose, stylish and elegant, with a very satisfying character on the palate. Rounded and polished it calls to mind a creamy-white stone, with its minerality and beauty combined. Rich yet refined, this is lovely now - but clearly has great potential for the cellar.
