2009 Michel Delhommeau "Clos Armand" Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 1.5L

SKU #1057941

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scents of pear, honeydew melon, and wet stone rise from the glass of Delhommeau’s 2009 Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Cuvee Clos Armand Vieille Vigne. A luscious but light-weight amalgam of honeydew, sweet lime, and poire distillate caresses the palate, with pear skin, stone, and salt adding stimulation in refreshing finish bound to reel you back for the next sip. I’m not familiar with the evolutionary trajectory of this cuvee, but I feel sure it will remain delicious for at least 2-3 years." Michel and Nathalie Delhommeau farm 28 hectares of vines planted on almost pure rock in the region. Dominating the estate is a rock called gabbro, which is essentially rock formed from molten lava. Many of the vines are quite old, producing low yields and very complex whites. Humble and quiet, these two are turning out impressively complex bottles of Muscadet that often smell more like great Chardonnay from Chablis.
