Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2017

I didn’t like the first bottle of this #muscadet at first but it’s grown on me. White peach, green apple, honeysuckle, white floral, light and crisp mouthfeel. — 3 months ago

Gneiss de Bel Abord Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Sur Lie Melon de Bourgogne 2016

#muscadet reminiscent of a Sauvignon Blanc - tart flintiness with subtle green apple and white peach flavors. Really a nice white when served fridge cold. — 2 years ago

Château Les Fromenteaux

Sur Lie Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne

A sizzling, focused Muscadet. Sea shells, sea spray, lemony acidity and an almost unctuous texture. Archetypical. #muscadet #luneau #fromenteaux — 10 months ago

Cuvée des Ceps Centenaires Comte Leloup de Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2012

Vintage 2012 / very rich for a Muscadet, probably because it is made from ‘vignes centenaires’ (old vines, more than 100 years old). The smell is a mix of minerality and quince. Soft attack, fine acidity with citrus impression. Perfect balance. It is a shame that #muscadet is underrated. Beautiful #loirewine for hot days. #melondebourgogne — a year ago

Sur Lie Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2016

Superb 2016. Mica-schist & gneiss; vines average 40 years. Creamy, leesy; continued to open over three days. A great lesson in the superior quality of hand-harvested fruit. #muscadet #luneau #fromenteaux #loire — a year ago

Expression d'Orthogneiss Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2014

2014. Exaggerated oily texture, due to extended sur lie aging. Fennel bulb, celery leaf, sea salt, wet stones. Massive to the point of lacking balance. Never my favorite Muscadet, but I respect Bossard and his regimen. #muscadet #melondebourgogne — a year ago
