It’s a real treat to compare different terroirs through a lens as crystal clear as the classic and biodynamic Muscadets of Domaine de L’Ecu. The Granite is all salty firmness and limpid clarity.

One of the more interesting Muscadets I've had! Definitely more perfumed than any other I've had in the past; aromas of honeydew melon, starfruit, and a bit of white rose join the classic Muscadet citrus and briny mineral character, which has an almost iodine-y character in this example that I actually really like. On the palate it shows more like classic Muscadet, with the citrus, hard cheese rind, and briny oyster shell predominating while the melon and floral character of the nose is replaced by ripe yellow apple. Acid is kickin' and razor sharp. Has a nice weighty medium body from the lees treatment but still remains nimble and quenching. Solid stuff. Would love to try it with the Gneiss and Orthogneiss to see how the soil type affects the final product, as i'm pretty sure they're all vinified pretty similarly.

Tasting great. Clean and minerally with just the right amount of weight.
