90 points Wine Spectator: "[$13 list] Rich for a Muscadet, with a lemon curd core, but still plenty tangy and vibrant, with chamomile, sea salt and savory herb notes cutting through the finish. Drink now. Best Values. (11/30/11)"
89 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "This is a really lovely bottle of Muscadet, but the wine is sealed with an artificial cork, so it will need to be drunk up in the first year, as I have had nothing but disastrous results trying to age wines with plastic corks. But, for drinking over the next year there is a lot of pleasure to be had here, as the wine offers up a deep and vibrant nose of lime, green apple, briny ocean tones, a touch of straw and a lovely base of stony soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and racy, with a lovely core of fruit, fine complexity, crisp acids and outstanding length and grip on the snappy and quite impressive finish. I really wished this wine had been sealed up under natural cork, as the structure here would easily carry this wine for eight to ten years. Good juice. 2012-2013+? (Jan/Feb 2012)"
Classic Muscadet with a nice balance of minerals, melon and citrus in the nose. Excellent acidity backs up a wine that possesses the spritz that is the hallmark of true Muscadet Sur Lie. Bottled unfiltered from vat, this is that perfect wine for all fish and shellfish. No lemon needed.
