    June 3, 2020 - Bottle 7 of 12. PnP and consumed with a grilled chicken zatar dish.
    Bright lime and ocean breeze on the nose, with a lithe and delicate presence on the palate.
    This is a perfect food wine, especially for seafood. The wine is a bit better than a bottle I had 6 months ago.
    Very good spine of acidity allows the minerality and salinity to show through, alongside limes and perhaps grapefruit zest.
    What a deal at $17 USD. Can you beat Muscadet anywhere, dollar for dollar, on the deliciousness scale?
    Drink now through 2025+.

    December 27, 2019 - Quite nice, mineral-driven Muscadet.

    September 3, 2019 - 5th bottle from a full case.
    Salinity and minerality trumps the light citrus fruit in this linear, refreshing, and chalky wine.
    I love a wine like this with oysters or sushi. Drink now through 2024+.

    November 22, 2018 - Highly textured - as someone said below (wish I could think of a better description); somewhat saline. A bit richer, rounder, than I expected this to be.

    I did like the wine; but it was somewhat more developed than I thought this would at this time .. which threw me off initially. I assumed that a Muscadet would have more lemony fruit at this time.
