  • Domaine Gadais Muscadet 2018
    $13.00
    White wine. Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Melon de Bourgogne. "The 2018 Muscadet 'Sur Lies' bottling from Christophe and Pierre-Henri Gadais is their 'entry level bottling' and it is a beautiful example of the vintage, offering up a superb bouquet of lemon, green apple, stony minerality, dried flowers, ocean breeze and a gentle hint of leesy tones. On the palate the wine is bright, zesty and fullish, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent focus and grip and really quite a good girdle of acidity for the 2018 vintage. First class Muscadet." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Domaine Gadais Monnieres Saint Fiacre 2016
    $22.00
    White wine. Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Melon de Bourgogne. "This bottling hails from the lieu à dit of Gras Mouton, and is emblazoned with the “1947” moniker on the label because that was the year that Louis Gadais bought this abandoned parcel in Gras Mouton and started clearing it and planting vines. It sits at the highest elevation in the vineyard and to use the Cru designation of Monnières-Saint-Fiacres for the wine, a minimum of twenty-four months aging on its fine lees is required. With the vines now more than seventy years of age, the 2016 vintage of this bottling offers up a superb bouquet of lime, breadfruit, ocean breeze, a complex base of salty minerality and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, crisp and full-bodied, with a good core of fruit, fine focus and grip, lovely complexity and a long, well-balanced and classy finish. This is drinking very nicely today, but clearly will age long and gracefully as well." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Domaine Gadais Muscadet Les Perrieres Monopole 2017
    $25.00
    White wine. Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Melon de Bourgogne. "The 2017 Muscadet 'les Perrières' is a monopole of Domaine Gadais is produced from vines in excess of forty years of age and only bottled on its own on what the family deems is an excellent vintage for the vineyard. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in older oak asks and aged in the same for a year and a half, with bimonthly battonage, and then bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2017 les Perrières delivers superb aromatic fireworks in its blend of lemon, bread fruit, a beautiful base of stony minerality, white flowers, gentle leesy tones and a topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with great intensity of flavor and lift, bright, snappy acids, great mineral drive and a long, very complex and vibrant finish. There is just a whisper of rounding off of the corners here from the older oak barrels the wine is aged in that I find really well-done and takes the wine up another point or two. This is simply stellar Muscadet." — 94 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
