2012 Domaine De L'ecu Muscadet Granite | Wiki & Review | Everipedia

"The 2012 Granite bottling from Messieurs Bossard and van Herck, as the name suggests, comes from hard granite soils and the vineyards for this cuvée are planted with forty-five to fifty- five year-old vines. As was the case with the very strong 2011, the extra mineral drive of the 2012 Granite bottling makes for a very, very special example of Muscadet, as the wine soars from the glass in a blaze of tart orange, smoke, very stony and complex minerality, bread fruit, leesy tones, lemongrass and a gently briny topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly refined on the attack, with a rock solid core, great stony soil signature, snappy acids and stunning length and grip on the impeccably balanced and laser-like finish. Breathtakingly beautiful Muscadet! 2014-2035+." [+]
