Tasting Note

The wine starts with a nose of citrus fruits, exotic flowers, and hints of orange peels. The palate is complex, full-bodied, and intense, with notes of sea salt, tangerine, and a touch of flowery aromas. The wine is showing a beautiful minerality and a long, grippy finish.

Vegan.

Ageing potential: 10 to 15 years

Decanter Magazine

As the name suggests, this prime hectare of land in the Monnieres-St-Fiacre cru was planted in 1947 by Louis Gadais, founder of this family Domaine now in its first generation. The wine has aged for two years on lees. The inviting nose shows fabulous aromas including smoke and lemon; the palate is juicy, long and ripe, with a vein of sweet citrussy acidity. Open and stylish, drinking beautifully now. 93 Points, Beverley Blanning MW, June 2022

Nick Fisher, blogger

What a lovely wine. Nose has citrus, melon and blossoms. The palate has a wonderful richness and depth. There is a citrus edge, with some creaminess and a saline feel washes around and brings it all together, before the finish of grapefruit, lemon, blossoms and galia melon lingers and melts away. Oh how Muscadet has moved on from 20 years ago. This is the best I can recall ever tasting available.

Food Pairing

This Muscadet pairs well with a wide range of food.  A seafood platter, smoked salmon, mussels, seafood paella, steamed cod with vegetables and a little cream and a fish curry. Also, a great partner to avocado, tapenade and aperitif nibbles.
