Winemaker's Notes

The most complex, ageworthy white wine you will ever buy for under $20? Quite possibly. Minerally, complex, high-acid white wine. This wine is something of a legend among wine geeks - try and bottle and you'll see why.

Clos des Briords is Marc's finest Muscadet. It comes from a single plot of 50-year old vines planted in schist (shale). Marc is the only grower in Muscadet who does not have a single clonal selection vine (commonly used to increase yield) in his vineyards. He propagates vines from the bud wood of the existing ones. His wines are kept on the yeast twice as long as those of his neighbors. The resulting wine is an extraordinary Muscadet. This wine has citrus-lime and wet stone aromas. On the palate it has bracing lemon mineral flavors that keep on going.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused and taut, with a bony texture carrying lemon, lime and salt notes through the refreshing crunchy finish."

I did not know what to expect with this wine and was pleasently suprised. Very fresh. Like a Savignon Blanc only a little dryer but still very fruity

It is the traditional way to make Muscadet, but has become the exception as growers and shippers rush to bottle technically correct wines by early January. Ollivier hand harvests, uses natural...

The main white grapes are Chenin Blanc, Muscadet and Sauvignon Blanc. For reds...
