(2023) A lees-aged Muscadet from the CÃ´tes de Grandlieu sub-region, rather than the possibly more familiar SÃ¨vre-et-Maine. There's a faint tinge of bronze to the colour here, the wine exhibiting an apple freshness with a hint of something nutty too. In the mouth there's a touch of sweetness - hard to say if that is residual sugar, but the effect is to make the wine feel as if it just lacks a little of Muscadet's tang and ozoney freshness.
(2015) Alc 11%. With 17.2g/l residual sugar this is an off-dry blend of 70% Grolleau and 30% Gamay. Dry redcurrant fruit on the nose, but the palate has a hit of sweetness - both ripe summer berries, but residual sugar too, giving this a summer fruit pudding matching appeal. So if the sun shines and the deck chairs are out.
