Monnières Saint-Fiacre Muscadet Serve & Maine 2005

91 points

Serve & Maine, Loire. 12.5%

Muscadet is usually thought of as cheap supermarket wine, useful dry white to wash down Oysters. But here is another profound Loire Muscadet. And 8 years old too!

In perfect condition, I guess it’s been in a cold Loire cellar. Impossible to guess the age by the nose.

Perhaps the creaminess on the palate gives it away but this is still fresh. Quite intense, juicy. Exciting wine.
