Louvetrie, Muscadet de Sevre et Maine “Le Fief du Breil”: 2004

May 22, 2008

Big name, quick notes.

Day 1 – Austere. Shut down like the Beach Boys tune.

Day 2 – Opening up wonderfully with grapefruit and seashells notes. The more air it got, the more expressive it got – in both fruit and mineral aspects. It developed some of the flavors I get from some Chenin Blancs as the chill blew off; A pleasant sweet pea flavor with a toasted bread edge to it. It really put on a great deal of weight over time, rounding and integrating into a really pleasurable wine. – Very complex and complete, but too young at this point to show it’s true colors. It paired confoundingly well with poached eggs. An awesome buy @ under $15 – but I will wait try it again in 2010.
