screw cap wine

The Wine Advocate rating: 90 points
PRICE ON 12/29/2014: $10.99

Winemaker's Notes:

A single-vineyard wine of unusual authority and texture, but unmistakable origin, from schist-grown vines over 60 years old. A Muscadet for those who appreciate fruit as well as the authentic saline minerality of the genre.
My Notes:

About Gilbert Chon:

The Chon brothers practice organic viticulture in a patchwork of crus that show the subtle but clear distinctions of terroir that exist in this popular but little-understood area. They make impeccably clean, vividly expressive wines at reasonable prices, and have been hailed by David Schildknecht as offering exceptional quality and value.
