First bottle from this producer and first serious muscadet. Poured directly after opening. Light yellow colour, slight golden hue. Apple on the nose and apple on the palate. Much rounder and supple than what I was expecting (a sharp, almost steely wine). Good balance (initially served a bit warm). Drunk with oysters and did not provide the match I had in mind (not the wine's fault). Would have passed for a Chardonnay from a cold climate (vicinity of Chablis, for example). Maybe a bottle that matured faster than expected, to be drunk by end of 2014 judging from this bottle. Definitely not what the word muscadet brings to mind. Very good.
Cette bouteille est fidèle au style de la maison, laissant l'impression de sucer des cailloux! Un peu plus austère que dans le passé il me semble, mais tout de même très bien, dense et intriguant. 89 pts
