Philippe has only been making wine since 2015, but this feral, hazy Muscadet shows a level of restraint and civility that often comes later in a winemaker’s arc. A blend of Melon from 5 hectares, he uses a screw press and zero S02. Its A riper voluptuous Muscadet with plenty of concentration and acid. Yeasty lemons and white flowers, flavors of white peach and apricot in a saline bath. — 16 hours ago
Am always impressed by the intensity of flavors and long finish. You can tell it’s not over extracted by the bright color so that’s not where the intensity comes from. Lush red berries followed by some spicy notes with a touch of mocha on the finish. I always try to get my hands on some if I can find some. — 10 days ago
2018 vintage. Pale pink with copper hue (what the French call "œil de perdrix" or "partridge's eye"). First impression on the nose not very attractive, but give it a few minutes in the glass and discover nice flowery aromas and red berries. Serious gastronomic rosé with good concentration, juicy fruit, spices and more than decent mineral length. A blend of Mourvèdre (60%), Cinsault and Grenache. Well done by this young estate (first vintage 2013). Abv. 13,5 %. — 5 days ago
Pure strawberries with a touch of raspberry fruit and raspberry leaves. Like a strawberry granita with mint. Zippy acid with a hint of herbal/bitter tannins on the finish. Pure pure fruit with a mineral core. Amazingly clean for a pet nat. Medium-coarse bubbles. Very enjoyable and refreshing. — 3 days ago
