Origin France, Loire
Sub-district Muscadet

A wonderfully characterful style from Bruno Cormerais, hints of fennel and tarragon run throughout this wine. Thrillingly pure and crisp, with tangy citrus fruit, it is quenching and enticing in equal measure. A perfect match for a seafood platter. L&S (Sep 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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.
