External Reviews for St. Jean de Minervois Muscat
A blast of fresh fruit and plenty of richness make this a satisfying sweet wine. Vivid apricot, banana and almond flavors give it depth and appeal.
Like its dry sibling, sweet, fragrant Muscat is one of France’s least known treasures — at least for Americans. This excellent N.V. Muscat St.-Jean Minervois reveals an intense bouquet (honeyed peaches, apricots, and flowers), vibrant, rich fruit, full body, and an off-dry, luscious finish. Sweet Muscats are superb wines to drink as aperitifs, or, as many knowledgeable European gourmets do, with sautéed foie gras.
This is a full-bodied white that has a lot of personality and certainly stands out in the crowd. Super-charged and incredibly intense, but well proportioned and delicately built at the same time. With its honeyed peach and apricot flavors, this off-dry, sweet Muscat would make a perfect end to any meal or day.
