Lightly sour and soapy in the nose with a dash of tropical fruit. Very nice, full flavor - sour with a bit of melon, some fruity sweetness, and a touch of soap (unfortunately). Well priced at $12.

The Chereau-Carre familyrsquo;s 2008 Chateau de la Chesnaire Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie can scarcely help but shock you in the nose, with its combination of ripe apricot, lily-of-the-valley and lime reminiscent more of a really fine Riesling than of Muscadet. Oily textural richness and persistent apricot on the palate are joined by more typical lemon, lime, chalk and salt. A tactile sense of citrus zest and apricot skin, along with a hint of apricot kernel bitterness add to the invigoration of the finish. Enjoy this over the next 12ndash;18 months.

The 2009 Chateau de la Chesnaie Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie smells unusually for its appellation of winter pear, pumpkin, and pineapple, tinged with and hints of sea breeze. Atypically lush in texture for this cuvée - not to mention luscious - it reminds me slightly of a Gruner Veltliner in its alternation of tropical and northerly fruits, its hints of green bean, black pepper, nutmeg, and salt, and its persistent, tactile sense of finishing piquancy, alkalinity, and stoniness. Not one of your ultra-refreshing let alone light renditions of Muscadet, this outstanding value will prove versatile at table for at least the next couple of years, but in circumstances where you might ordinarily elect to open a wine of another genre.

The 2005 Chacirc;teau de la Chesnaie Muscadet de Segrave;vre-et-Maine Sur Lie smells fetchingly of peaches and green apple with diverse herbs and flowers. In the mouth, a chalky, brothy character suggests Chablis-like expression of minerals. Faintly bitter notes of wet stone, chalk, iodine, apple pit and peach kernel inform a strikingly long finish, but they cannot subdue this winersquo;s infectious, primary fruit juiciness, and the overall effect is invigorating and refreshing, so much so, in fact, that if you donrsquo;t find yourself going back to the next sip, somebody should check your pulse!

Unseen, lazy bubbles; salt settling in the corners of the palate; salivating, acidic finish. Through lemony hues, the steely Atlantic influence faintly flickers in this lightly fruited, clean white. From the vineyards surrounding the mouth of the Loire, this wine is bottled sur lie mdash; left unstirred on yeast lees produced during fermentation mdash; producing a Muscadet thatrsquo;s as delicate as stilled Champagne. Matches particularly well with ginger scallops on a bundle of arugula.

Bright, round and exuberant, with lemon peel, floral, sea salt and pink grapefruit notes that bounce around while remaining harmonious. Long, juicy finish leaves you salivating for more. Drink now.
