De Maison Selections, Chapel Hill NC.
From eighty year old vines in a sheltered, riverside site of eroded orthogneiss and schist. Thirty months on the lees.
Yellow gold. Secondary notes of toasted barley and ocean-front caramel to the lush yellow ripeness of ’05. Hawthorne and iron-ore with a pronounced grip and saltiness. Textural for Muscadet; ashes to ashes at the end. Now – 2020+.
