Lieu Dit Melon (Muscadet)

$27.49

Description

If you're a Loire fan, you might think you're dreaming right now. Isn't that Melon… you know, Muscadet?? Yes indeed. The team of Justin Willett (of cult favorite Tyler Winery) and sommelier Eric Railsback (he's in the SOMM documentary) have taken their love of France's Loire Valley and brought it home. Cab Franc and Chenin Blanc aren't too unusual from California, but the Melon plantings they found had been mislabeled as Pinot Blanc. They fixed that and made a wine with the saline and lean citrus you expect from Muscadet but with incredibly engaging texture of pear and yellow grapefruit. They don't make much of this, so get it while you can. - Peter Plaehn
