2011 Bonnet-Huteau "Les Levraudiere" Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Flavor-wise, there are only subtle differences, with the light-bodied, fresh, elegant, zesty 2010 Muscadet La Levraudiere revealing gin and tonic-like notes intermixed with white flower and crushed rock characteristics. It spent six months on its lees, which gives it surprising texture for Muscadet. A recent discovery by American importer Peter Weygandt, these are top-flight Muscadets that sell for fair prices. They are natural wines from organically run vineyards and are bottled without any fining. The three 2010 cuvees come from single terroirs with different soil types. (RP)
This is 100% Melon de Bourgogne from vines between 10 and 30 years old on mix of sandy-clay and gneiss soils. It is aged on the lees for 6 months.
