MuscaDay 2015: My favorite wine in this flight, perhaps of the night. Delicious, exotic, refined, full of complexity. So much chalk and minerals, but the green pear and apple fruit is still going, a creamy, richer aspect accents the acidity. Wonderful stuff, still seems to have years ahead.
My last bottle and there's no question I wish I had more. Not so pale now. An utterly unusual, though quite pleasant, aroma that calls to my mind something more like rock dust than it does any fruit or flower. Different but good (and I mean different compared to all the other Briords I've had--atypical). The palate is lemony rocks. Still going very strong. Looks like I bought only five bottles of this, which was a bit shortsighted. Very, very good.
Yes, still delicious. Less racy, more creamy. Still seashell lemon rocks and saline, but age has put a few pounds on the formerly sinewy body. No longer a rock-hard club kid, now a sexier, curvier, more mature Muscadet. Did I just write that? I did.
Reunion Dinner in DC (Red Hen - Washington, DC): Served really cold at first, it wasn't until this had warmed up a bit and seen some air that it began to soar. A gorgeous rendition of the Briords and actually showed a bit more weight than I would have thought. Tasted a bit what I'd expect from Pepiere's Clisson. Anyways, this had beautiful lemon, flint, florals, and an ocean water tone to the bottle. Brilliant bottle of Muscadet.
