Château de la Ragotière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2006

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

86 points. This wine’s aroma is incredibly yeasty, with tons of minerality, hinting at seastone, limestone, pumice, and crushed seashells. There is a touch of lemon flower and lemon pith, with a very faint rubber component as well. This is a delicate wine. There are hints of petrol and limestone, with some lemon pith and seeds toward the first half. Around the mid palate and into the finish there is a slightly citrus flower and yeast component, with a faint hint of leaves and cucumber. This wine is medium bodied, somewhat spritzy, and crisp and dry. It’s very light, and the flavor and aroma intensity is a bit muted. This would be a good Muscadet to have with very mildly flavored seafood, preferably served raw. Not a bad wine, but just a little uneventful.

There may have been something wrong with the bottle we bought, however, this is the worst wine I have ever had in my life. We actually poured our glasses back into the bottle and left it to be thrown out in our hotel.
