Martin-Luneau Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine “Clisson” 2010


Cru Muscadet’s secret strength may be its ability to age. We tasted through a few older bottles at the domaine last spring, and they were strikingly good.

The nose on the 2010 Clisson is very dry, with notes of oxidized green apples, brioche, minerals, and oyster shells; the mouth is surprisingly long and intense. Much like older Rieslings, the acidity in these wines carries them through the years, keeping them alive and kicking nearly a decade later.

If you like dry Loire whites, or need something unusual to match intense Belon oysters, you might give this a try.
