Julien Braud Sevre et Maine sur lie Muscadet, 2013 - 750ml


Variety(ies):  Melon de Bourgogne

This is the same amazing winemaker who makes the Forty Ounce Muscadet and Forty Ounce Rose you have heard about.  Only these are older vines and longer lees aged at crazy good prices. 

Light golden color with bright reflections. The grapes for this flagship Muscadet are from two distinct areas and are around 60 years old. About half are from, Les Quaterons, where the soils are largely comprised of gabbro, a dense blue, green, gray (depends who you ask) rock formed from molten lava that impart power, density and acidity. The balance of the grapes come from soils largely of gneiss, lending freshness, fruit and energy to the blend.   This wine spends 13 months aging on the lees and another six months in bottle before leaving the domaine. On the nose there are pear, apple, sea spray, white flowers, lees and crushed stones. In the mouth this medium bodied beauty is tense, mineral driven and elegant. There is little question that this wine could age for a decade plus over which time I’d expect to see complex notes of anise and mint added to the mix. This is a seafood all-rounder, from oysters and shrimp to all varieties of white fish. It also has the chops to sit alongside white meat dishes.
