Vintage 2014 / by Jove, what a quality jump if Muscadet has stayed some years in bottle / minerals, citrus and hay / yield restricted, harvesting at maximum of maturity, aged 24 months on lees / granite shale and sand soils / medium weight and body, quite some power actually which makes it a fine dinner wine / good aftertaste / paired with cabillaud and shi take / archetypical Muscadet — 7 months ago
For Alex. Like fernet but less astringent n herbaceous — 2 years ago
Smoky caramel-mocha nose shows broom straw and bamboo, vanilla bean, graphite, tea biscuit, cardamom, cinnamon-apple, attic nutmeg and cilantro. Rich and chocolate-y mouthfeel with warm cinnamon heat is exemplary. First taste puts the dully oaken nose to shame for insufficient suggestion. This thing brings a support beam of heavy oak in abundance. Cedar, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, tobacco; the gangs all here. Coffee is the magnet in the middle; two sugars, black, a millisecond before the heavy cream and drizzled caramel. Buckwheat, buckthorn, and dried pineapple are the lightning in this dark storm. Add ginger and dried lime and a drop of Fernet Branca and you’ve nailed it. Don Quixote used to nip this for breakfast. #brandy #cardinalmendoza #spanishbrandy #brandydejerez #soleragranreserva #jerez #sanchezromatehermanos #sanchezromate #grapespirit — a month ago

This is Muscadet actually. 2013 vintage. Single vineyard in the Vallet subzone (one of the 10 crus communaux) . 100% Melon de Bourgogne, aged 51 months on the lees in this particular vintage (normally 24).No malo. Citrus fruit and minerality. Ripe grapefruit, high acidity, good length with grapefruit bitterness and salty minerality. Still very young, I believe this will benefit from a few more years of bottle ageing. Abv. 12%. 6250 bottles produced. — 3 months ago
Pours pretty mature ruby with a dusky dried rose edge.
Initial nose is blueberries, bay leaf, myrtle. In a pretty happy place re balance.
With 6 hours of air shows a tiger balm/fernet type of herbal complexity. I preferred it pop and pour but appreciate both expressions. — 7 months ago
An excellent dinner at the Clove Club in London- finished off with a dessert that explodes with 2 parts Fernet Branca and 1 part Briottet Liquor de Menthe. Wow. — 2 years ago
