Domaine de l'Ecu (Guy Bossard)

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 — 5 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. — a year ago

Château de Chasseloir

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 — 3 months 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 — 7 months ago
