Grand Fief De La Cormeraie Muscadet Sèvre Et Maine Sur Lie 2014


Score 88  "Aromatically reserved, but bright, sharp and nicely focused on the palate, with notable saline character and lightly honeyed-waxy notes on the finish. Perfectly crisp and light, appealing and infinitely drinkable. Textbook stuff, and yet another fine Muscadet value." Tasted March 2016. Value Rating: ***  John Szabo, WineAlign

Score 88  "An organic Muscadet with verve, liveliness and spritz. Appealing racy notes of lemon and lime don the palate along with a briny mineral character and white pepper on the finish. Great typicity." Tasted March 2016.

Cormeraie 2014

Vitteaut-alberti — crémant

Rosé Brut -- This is beautifully made crémant, poised, elegant and satisfying – one of our two our best selling wines!

Blanc des Blancs Brut
-- “This Crémant certainly deserved its Gold Medal in Paris, … delicately proportioned, powerful, with a concentrated nose where the ripe fruits and the dry fruits dominate, of creamy froth and a very beautiful length.” (Millésimes. No 26e, 2005.) Gold Medal, Concours Agricole, Paris 2005. 3 Stars & Coup de Coeur, Hachette Guide to French Wines, 2003 & 2006.

Chateau du coing — muscadet

Château du Coing de St.- Fiacre 2014 — "Le Classique"
-- Very generous nose featuring white flowers excellent balance on the palate with bright citrus finish, with very, very, good length. Gold Medal Nantes 2012; Un Vin Presque Parfait 2012.

Coing de Sèvre 2014 -- The vineyard at Le Coing is extensive and the ‘Coing de Sèvre’ bottling comes from a plot of younger vines (15-25 years) whose wine usually matures early and for that reason is often the first cuvée to be released and tasted. This is her second label but is not a 'second' wine.

mallard-gaulin — burgundy

Pinot Noir "Chanceroy" Vieilles Vignes 2013  -- Lovely cherry fruit up front, surprisingly dense on the palate, quite bright and tart structure, excellent but not overwhelming tannis, quite big for the appellation woth wonderful balance of fruit and acidity -- and drinking very well now with even better days to come!
