Château de la Ragotière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Built by the noble Lor de la Ragotiere family in the fourteenth century Chateau de la Ragotire was purchased in 1979 by the Couillaud brothers. After acquiring the property Bernard Franois and Michel discovered an old cellar in the chapel housing vintages dating back to 1947. The Couillaud brothers strive to carry on the tradition of making high quality long-lasting Muscadets. The Svre and Maine rivers converge and flow into the Loire river just before it meets the sea at the border of Brittany creating the richest vineyard land in Muscadet. Ragotires holdings consist of 55 hectares including 25 hectars of the finest Muscadet vineyards in the Appellation Muscadet de Sevre et Maine with the vines averaging over 25 years of age. Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar writes: Green-tinged pale color. Fresh mineral lime and spearmint nose. Stony and subtle in the mouth with citric hints of orange and lemon and sneaky flavor intensity. Still tightly wrapped but has excellent focus and cut.
