2013 Haut Bourg Muscadet Cotes De Grandlieu

"The 20113Muscadet “Côtes de Grandlieu” from Domaine Haut Bourg is an excellent example of the vintage, offering up a fine bouquet of tart orange, sea breeze, stony soil tones, a bit of citrus peel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and beautifully balanced, with a very good core, zesty acids and lovely focus and grip on the long and wide open finish. This is drinking beautifully out of the blocks, and though it will not be particularly long-lived, there is an awful lot of pleasure to be had here in the next three or four years. 2014-2017." [+]
