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

Nice breadth as counterpoint to the acidity and minerality. Juicy fruit. Nice with smoked salmon. Good value. Biodynamic!

Smells like sticking my face in the ocean. Bring on the oysters - slurping the juice! Broad on the palate but laser focused on the acid. Take me to France. 🙏🏼

Yeast and white flower in the nose. Mineral, acid on the finish. Incredibly food friendly. Don't chill too much - nose is best just chilled from room temp.
