The bottling was first launched in the 2008 vintage and this tenth incarnation in 2017 is flat out exceptional. The refined and complex bouquet offers up a fine blend of bread fruit, a touch of pear, complex leesy tones, even more complex minerality, dried flowers and a topnote of ocean breeze. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and mineral-driven, with a superb core, excellent complexity and grip and a long, zesty and perfectly balanced finish. This is the finest bottle of 2017 Muscadet I have yet to taste from the vintage!
