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)
