Muscadet Sevre et Maine "Clisson" (Betes Curieuses, Les)

Ethereal Lime & Apple, Mightily Minerali from Les Betes Curieuses, Muscadet Sèvre et M

Vintage: 2013
Description: Les Betes Curieuses, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine "Clisson", Loire Atlantique, France, 2013 {organic} 100% Melon de Bourgogne Ethereal Lime & Apple, Mightily Mineralistic, Elegantly Oceanic The two Jérémies (Huchet & Mourat) of Les Betes Curieuses are impassioned, young Loire vignerons. Both were born in 1977, and both have found their identities as winegrowers while chasing the majestic minerality and invigorating acidity that define their favorite wines. Together, they set out in 2005 to translate the terroir of the Atlantic Loire and the characteristics of the Melon grape into the most iconic wines possible. Taking its name from the Sèvre Nantaise village of Clisson and channeling a vineyard of granite and sand, this cuvée is simultaneously austere and opulent with zesty citrus and granny smith gliding over a bed of electrifying mineral and bracing acidity. Magnifique! Serving Suggestion: Raw mollusks for the win! Squid sashimi, fresh oysters, or razor clam ceviche take this tasting experience to the next level.
