Loving muscadet these days ... lemon, rocks, perfect with hot & sour soup 🥰

Soft but lean, a beautiful and polished bottle. Clean, fresh and weightless

Classic. Balance of clean and crisp tart fruit, sea spray, wet chalk, lees. Round, zippy, everything I want in Muscadet

Found marked down at the local no-frills discount liquor dump. Can’t think of too many $19 whites with this kind of class; oyster shells and wet stones. Plenty of richness without being funky or overly leesy. Tremendous length. #muscadetsevreetmaine #pépière

I could buy all that was available of this wine and not have enough. 2014 of perhaps a touch rounder than some, but that's not a complaint. I have more, but there are not enough to last the arc of this wine's life. Best white value/age deal, hands down.

Crisp, slight fizz, nice and dry. Distinct honeysuckle nose for me. Hints of riverbed and finished like a Loire white. Damn. Wish I had some oysters, but a frisée, Lardon and poached egg salad will do

New vintage (2016) only serves to confirm my opinion... "one of the worlds greatest wine producers". Can a wine be subtle and serious at the same time... ABSOLUTELY!! Once you let you mind calm down and prepare to hear it's voice, this is very very impressive....thank you for making it.
