2010 Domaine du Haut Bourg, Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu “Le Pavillon” Sur Lie, Loire Valley, France. (Grape: Melon de Bourgogne-Dry White)
This pretty and dry white from the Loire Valley is a perfect oysters or cheese wine that is fresh and lively with round citrus, white peach and mineral tones. This Muscadet is easy easy and flows with a gentle grace and classic style that is both lighthearted, but still serious in detail. Nice lime and wet stones linger on the finish while taught acidity leaves you wanting another sip. Drink over the next 2 or 3 years, but best now.
