A Delightful 93 point Loire White - the Best Muscadet You'll Taste for $14.95
A quintessential Muscadet sur lie from a family-owned and farmed vineyard -- citrusy and floral on the nose and palate, lively fresh acidity on the finish that makes it a perfect anytime wine. The two Bonnet brothers, Remi and Jean-Jacques practice organic farming. Les Gautonieres is one of their top vineyard terroirs. They bottle their wines without any fining.

"... The 2010 is a stunning bottle of Muscadet, offering up a deep and vibrant nose of lime zest, gentle leesy tones, a beautiful base of stony soil and just a whiff of gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and wonderfully complex, with a great core of fruit, a superb signature of soil and outstanding length and grip on the long and snappy finish. High class Muscadet!...93 Points." - John Gilman, View from the Cellar
