Domaine de l'Ecu Muscadet Classic
Domaine de l'Ecu
France - Loire Valley - Muscadet de Sevre et Maine sur lie

This vintage claims to be "Classic" purely to set itself apart from the tendancy to promote wines whose aromas have their origin neither in the variety of grape nor in the locality...This Muscadet is developed and vinified to be appreciated young "on the fruit". It is crystal clear and the color of yellow straw. Lime, grapefruit, white fruits, pear and apple, salty and citrus notes are generously present on the nose.
The mouth is rich, straight, providing a beautiful acid screen; lime and soft notes of the sea provide a good balance and a great freshness in this Muscadet, superb landmarks which stretch to the end....
