2015 Domaine de Begrolles Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sur Lie

SKU #1278502 Wine Spectator

 This crackles nicely, with lime, fleur de sel and thyme notes rippling through. Lively finish. (JM, Web-2016)

K&L Notes

This Muscadet is very pure and bright, with an intense floral bouquet with overtones of spice and fruit. The richness, balance and freshness of this wine make it an excellent example of its appellation. It is enjoyable young, but will age well for several years. It is, however, unlikely you'll be able to save some--it's that good. Perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood dishes.

Light but classic nose on this vintage from Domaine Begrolles. White peach and nectarine along with Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apple. Seashell minerality and white flowers round out the bouquet. Stone fruit is more subtle on the palate; more pronounced green apple and lemon pith. Deliciously crisp, I want this wine with shellfish. Oysters on the half shell or moules frites would both be classic pairings.

None of us drink enough Muscadet. This is lively, fresh and has a saline finish that quenches your thirst like nothing else. This affordable bottle is perfect for washing down all sorts of fare but especially light cheeses and shellfish. it is also a perfect party sipper.

Additional Information:


Melon de Bourgogne

- A white wine grape that originated in Burgundy, Melon de Bourgogne has, sadly, essentially vanished from that region. But fans of the varietal need not despair; its virtual disappearance from this pricy zip code has not prevented it from thriving in the Loire Valley, where it is made into the affordable, zippy, mineral, citrusy wines of Muscadet that pair so well with oysters. The best of those wines come from the region Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine. It is sometimes simply referred to as Muscadet.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
