MUSCADET SÈVRE ET MAINE VIEILLES VIGNES
2015 MUSCADET SÈVRE ET MAINE Vieilles Vignes Sur Lie Domaine Bruno Cormerais
|Grapes||Melon de Bourgogne|
We have been searching for a long time for a characterful, well priced Muscadet and have kissed many frogs. But this little star hit the bull's eye, good intensity of citrus fruit, just a hint of fennel and then a touch of creaminess, yes some personality to draw you back for another glass. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 L&S (Jul 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Salty with bright, soft fruit. Easy and with a good line through it. Drinking range: 2018 - 2019 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Oct 2018)
Domaine Bruno Cormerais
A family domaine of 28 hectares. Bruno's son Maxime took over from his father in 2014. The property is in the south-west corner of the appellation, and the soil here is granitic, so, as they put it, "un terroir granitique pour un Muscadet atypique" - an atypical Muscadet from an atypical terroir. The main difference here is how wonderfully intense the wines are. Serious and beautifully shaped - the minerality keeps the wine so focused and taut. The wine needs time - Maxime makes some cuvées that he keeps for over 8 years on their lees - the wine we most enjoy is a less intellectual affair - the 'Vieilles Vignes'. This spends the maximum time allowed on the lees - and then he keeps for another year in bottle before he is happy for it to be drunk. It is well worth the wait! Delicious pure and long. Think shell-fish think lightly flavoured white meat dishes or simply enjoy as a crisp long aperitif. A super new find.
Freshen the senses, refresh the soul this Christmas. For those occasions when something cleaner and more lifted is required – aperitif maybe, a bit of chit chat with friends, a quick glass for the exasperated chef – you decide.
