Ch De Chasseloir Muscadet 2007 Cuvee Des Ceps Centenaires
Authority: WA - Wine Advocate
"Latest rendition of the Loire wine with the longest name as well as one of the region’s most distinguished track records, the 2007 Chateau de Chasseloir Comte Leloup de Chasseloir Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Cuvee des Ceps Centenaires once again represents a sensational value. Scents of sea breeze; honeydew and musk melon; and fresh lemon lead into an expansive yet persistently refreshing palate, featuring rich hints of nut oils beneath bright, juicy, brine-crusted waves of melon and citrus. The finishing amalgam of musk melon, lemon, salt, chalk, and chicken stock is invigorating and lip-smacking as well as strikingly tactile in its sense of minerality. Close your eyes and just try making yourself believe that salt water and chalk have not somehow been transported into this wine – not that I’m letting my skeptical guard slip without a fight! Expect this – based on an impeccable track record – to be worth following for at least the next ten years, not that you should wait one month let alone year longer than necessary to make its acquaintance."
