2016 Henri Poiron Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Sur Lie Domaine des Quatre Routes, France, Loire Valley, Wine Review
I love Muscadet. They are some of the best values in the wine world. Rarely do the cost more than $15 and even the very best are under $30. And they age much better than many people think. Light green gold in color. The nose has slate, green apples, sea air and slight crushed shells. A bit of salinity as well. On the palate, this is slightly oily. Nice mineral streak, crushed shells and slight grapefruit. Slightly warm on the finish, but serving a bit cooler might help that. It retails for $15 which is a very fair price and well worth it.
