Ultimately, this was… well… correct. But somehow I expected more from a biodynamic estate that bottles terroir-specific Muscadets. Maybe I missed something. Pale gold. Neutral, as might be expected. Slight lemon skin fruit, which became pear skin a day later. Slight floral. Slight minerality; 2 days later this became a clear note of freshly-opened oyster – marine / salty. No palate spritz. Light-medium body, with creamy lees touches. Minerally unripe lemon. Saline mid-palate and finish. Bright, but not brisk acidity. Quite rounded palate, rather than ‘hardness’. Fairly long.
