Light and chalky with a zesty bright streak of acidity. Crisp and focussed. Very good.

Seashells. Mineral, zero fruit. Cheese rind, rich and ripe but terrific acidity. No fruit but nice. Tastes same old and it does young.

Had this before, but new vintage I believe. Lots more lees than I remember, crisp acidity, stone minerality and citrus on the finish.

Steely, crushed oyster shell, and lemon oil aromatics. Tons of acidity...sharp. Lemon juice over limestone on the palate with a touch of grapefruit. Even some fresh squeezed lime and maybe some light cheese? Needs food...like oysters!

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
