Muscadet and Chinon

Luc Choblet ‘Clos De La Senaigerie’ Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2004

Surprising golden and mature color. Lime, chalk, and fresh peas. The acidity didn’t bite back as I was expecting – but enough to keep the  overall impression well-balanced.  Salty, subtle and finessed. Try it with roast chicken and peas. Good, but no Clos de Briords…

Domaine Bernard Baudry, “Les Granges,” Chinon 2007

Purple. Just enough funk on the nose to provide intelligent counterpoint to the pure fruit (Bing cherry and currant).  This is Chinon at it’s purest and most honest. Herbal midpalate with a signature snap of peppers and vivid acidity. Just a little tannic grip to keep it real. More integrated and lip-smaking on day 2 and drop-dead fabulous with truffly mac-n-cheese.
