This is the “Clos de la Géraudrie Granite” bottling from Domaine de la Géraudrie and it’s a beauty. It gives you everything you’re looking for in a Muscadet. It’s bright and aromatic with sweet stone fruits, but also wonderful, lip-smacking acidity and piercing minerality that dominate the palate. It’s a match made in heaven for anything with seafood, but would also pair nicely with a summer salad, some fresh Jersey corn and tomatoes or even poultry dishes.
The wine is almost chewy, with its juicy red and black fruits and licorice with some mineral streaks. It’s young and really vibrant, with a high-toned feel that makes it great with food. Still, it’s got so much personality and easy drinking appeal that it’s hard not to give the wine its own spotlight.
Top notch Chenin grown on a biodynamically farmed parcel of gravel over limestone and flint. Vinified dry in steel with no wood aging. From the glass, complex Aromas of Anjou pear, citron, white flowers and cream soar with just a touch of jasmine and honey. On the palate, the wine is rich yet still bone dry with a vibrant core of peach and pear fruits and a fresh crackling of saline and minerality. The zipped up acidity makes this wine both fantastic at the table and a great candidate for aging.
Trust me, this is a fantastic Menetou-Salon. It’s one of those quintessential bottlings from the tiny region that perfectly exemplifies the early sweet and stone fruit flavors that you get backed by some racy acidty and an absolutely to die for mineral streak. This one comes from the coveted Kimmeridgian limestone terroir and vines that are all at least 40 years in age. That gives this so much energy, concentration and lift – it’s a treat!
Maison Foucher makes their ‘Petit Le Mont’ Sancerre with grapes from the villages of Sancerre, Chavignol (near Monts Damnés) and d’Amignyt just like the big brother bottling. The only difference is those are always blended with some Sauvignon Blanc from outside Sancerre’s town lines, automatically turning this into a killer value. With wonderfully chalky limestone soil, the wines have a solid core, with a wonderful roundness as well as that irresistible mineral streak. I get bright, steely notes of green apple, jasmine blossom and green melon and soaring aromatics. This is one of those wines that grows on you with each sip. It’s hard to put down.
Valery Renaudat’s 2022 P’tit Renaudat Pinot soars from the glass, with a mixture of black cherry and blueberry fruit on the nose, gradually unfurling to reveal some aromas of rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy fruit and a long, fresh finish that will keep you coming back for more.
Just in time, we got back Vincent Ricard’s all-time great white wine bargain. This is a crisp, clean and flat out delicious Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The protege to the Silex-style of Dagueneau – who over the last 15 years has produced flawless and beloved white wines that at last count were on the wine lists of over 36 Michelin-starred restaurants. This is a great house white and one that can surely hold its own with just about everything on the table.
