Domaine du Haut Bourg,  Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu - 2010

Tasting Note

The Choblet’s brilliantly green-gold 2009 Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu – grown on sand-like eroded mica schist and granite –... (more...); smells mouthwateringly of fresh lime, sea spray, herbs, chicken stock, and shrimp shell reduction, all of which follow on a palate of utmost juiciness and refreshment yet also a striking degree of subtly oily cling; seemingly tactile mineral and lime zest impingement; and lip-smacking salinity. Hints of iodine and fresh red raspberry with its crunchy, tart seeds add further interest and invigoration. This sensational value suggests a Muscadet that has borrowed a bit from Chablis and Nahe Riesling. I would be inclined to plan on relishing it over the coming 9-12 months. – Wine Advocate
