Guy Bossard de l'Ecu Muscadet Cuvee Classic 2015

This vintage claims to be “Classic” purely to set itself apart from the tendancy to promote wines whose aromas have their origin neither in the variety of grape nor in the locality...This Muscadet is developed and vinified to be appreciated young “on the fruit”.

Review:

"Fresh apple with tangy skin and subtly piquant seed inflections is seemingly suffused with crushed stone. The feel is polished and the finish retains satisfying juiciness and stony grip. Niger had to intervene in tank with sulfur after this started into malolactic. It nonetheless showed well in late July 2016 and was, like the other l’Ecu “geological” bottlings, slated for September 2016 bottling. But I have not yet been able to connect with the finished wine in the US. At this point, I prefer to be conservative with my prognosis of ageability. - David Schildknecht”

Each terroir is managed with minimal intervention in an environmentally friendly approach. Vinification: Slow pressing. Fermentation took place under controlled temperatures (18°C).The wine was aged on fine lees for a minimum of 4 months. It was filtered only once before being bottled.
