Muscadet, Climat, Château de la Fessardièe, Alex Sauvion, 2004

It’s almost getting boring to write about excellent Muscadet, but it may well be the most exciting white wine region around these days. Not that there are so many great producers, but now there are literally dozens of top notch wines being imported by small importers dedicated to quality and these wines are without a doubt the best values in white wine available in the market today.

 This wine is no exception with a refined balance between its firm, mineral-laden fruity-ness and its bright acidity.  Just lovely and only about $12 a bottle. Delicious now, but this fine wine will improve for the next several years.
