Chateau de la Chesnaie Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2016

Member Review by trecker:

A nice pale color. Pear and apple on the nose. A very smooth wine, no tart tastes. A light wine that went well with a light pasta/shrimp salad for dinner.

The Chereau-Carre family'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 12-18 months.

The 2005 Château de la Chesnaie Muscadet de Sèvre-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 wine's infectious, primary fruit juiciness, and the overall effect is invigorating and refreshing, so much so, in fact, that if you don't find yourself going back to the next sip, somebody should check your pulse!

Muscadet is made from Melon grapes in the region in the 17th century by Dutch wine traders to provide a source of brandy. Today it is a light, tangy wine that is perfect with fish of any kind and a pure delight with oysters.

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 - left unstirred on yeast lees produced during fermentation - producing a Muscadet that's as delicate as stilled Champagne. Matches particularly well with ginger scallops on a bundle of arugula.

Light and vivacious, offering lemon, apple and mineral flavors that linger on a tangy, firm structure. Perfect with a plate of oysters. Drink now.

Bright and crunchy, with lime, floral and chalk notes. Crisp, refreshing finish. Drink now.

Produced from the melon grape variety in the panoramic Loire Valley. Lively acidity and fresh, clean flavors make this popular dry white an ideal partner with seafood. Bon Apetite!
