Domaine des Tilleuls Vieilles Vignes - Muscadet
France - Loire
REGION: Muscadet, France
VARIETIES: Melon de Bourgogne
Muscadet is, hopefully, undergoing something of a resurgence. Long the darling of those who loved a bright, fresh, crisp white to go with their ﬁsh, it fell out of fashion for many years as people turned more to the new world. But you can’t beat the sense of place (or value) with a Muscadet. It gets even better if you ﬁnd a producer willing to bet on trying things with this tricky grape: this is made from old vines (40 years+) giving greater concentration, and the slight bottle age adds complexity.
