Pierre-Luc Bouchaud, Pont Caffino, Muscadet de Sèvre & Maine, Loire, 2014
(at Decanter's June 2017 issue Muscadet with extended lees ageing Panel Tasting, 23 Feb 2017)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2027
Golden pear skin and a subtle struck-match aroma, with notes of pine, orange blossom and bergamot . The lean, tense palate unravels and opens out in the glass. It feels alive, energetic and delicately poised. A very pretty wine with a cherry-like acidity and a fresh, sappy finish. Plenty of concentration and length, a wine of serious intent with more to come from further ageing.
