Wine Details

Opens with beeswax, blossom, and honeyed pear notes. The salinity and seashell arrive shortly after opening, and are more apparent on the palate where they combine with a lemony/chalky minerality in a long, pure finish. As mouthwatering a wine as you’ll find, and delicious with oysters and shellfish as you can imagine.

Cam Confidential

Louis Métaireau is a Loire Valley legend, instrumental (along with a small group of “vignerons d’art”) in restoring the reputation of Muscadet in the middle of the century. His Grand Mouton vineyard (now run by his daughter Marie-Luce and her husband Jean Francois) is as close to Premier/Grand Cru as you’ll find in the Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine region; here old vines in granitic and flaky amphibolite soils conspire to produce wines with tremendous minerality and freshness, offering a compelling brew of crunchy seashell, citrus/stonefuit and fresh ocean breeze aromas. The Métaireau Muscadet Petite Mouton is sourced from 37 year old vines and aged sur lie.

Paired perfectly with oysters last weekend. Nice minerality, and great citrus acidity. What else do you want in a Muscadet? Great value wine.
