TN: 2005 Domaine de la Pépière "Granite de Clisson" Muscadet Sèvre et Maine

#7 of 12. Finally, this is starting to show some aromatics!! In its youth, it was pure and crystalline but showed absolutely nothing in the way of aromatics; was previously like drinking a wine with a closepin on your nose. This bottle had nice aromas of mineral and lemon, and a good amount of richness. Not too dissimilar from a well aged chablis. Very enjoyable and an excellent example of aged muscadet. At or close to peak now to my palate.

Good muscadet is the Rodney Dangerfield of wine. It is low priced, often has a crystalline youth, and has great aging potential, yet is still gets little or no respect.

Cheers,
