Domaine Pierre de la Grange (Luneau-Papin), Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Terre de Pierre ‘Butte de la Roche’ 2010

Terre de pierre 2010 #1

Imported by Louis Dressener Selections and LDM Wines, New York, NY.

100% Melon de Bourgogne, planted in 1974, grown in a geological abnormality, a metamorphic outcrop high in the hills of coastal Loroux-Bottereau.

Five years on.

Primrose.  Ozonic intimations of copper penny, ash and sea breeze, expressing both his vertical structure and iron-clad self-belief.  The palate is tangibly richer and curdy, with an inner-mouth perfume of orchid and melon, like a great baozhong tea.  The finish is salty and incisive, an iodine-tinged mineral broth with pinpoint minerality.  Such a bright future ahead!  Now – 2020+.
