Second bottle of this in the past two weeks, and both outstanding. Nice mature golden hue, with waxy, honeysuckle nose. Lemon creme, almost Chardonnay-like palate, with great length. I'll admit to being lukewarm on a couple of these bottles consumed 6-8 years ago, but these have blossomed wonderfully.

1999 vintage. Lemon curd and chalky minerals, with some clean white mushroom notes. Slightly lower in acid than expected.

The fruit is fading but there's still a backbone holding things together.

Last bottle. Very mineral and lovely notes of cheese rind on the nose. Also sweet seashells if that makes sense. Like a sweet salinity. Palate is electric, as 04 can be, with nice opulent mouthfeel yet rapier-like acids and almost chewy saline tannins on the finish. Maybe even needs an honor to open up. Terrific long finish

Taking on herbal and gaseous notes I don't associate with Muscadet. Fascinating evolution, excellent wine.

Quite full bodied for a Muscadet, almost Burgundy like. Acidity is fading but plenty of mineral character.
