Vine Re­vival, Terre de Gneiss 2015 Mus­cadet-Sèvre et Maine

Living France - - À La Maison -

(£22.50 Cav­iste) This is a prime ex­am­ple of the ex­cit­ing new wave of Mus­cadet. Made by sis­ters who grew up in the re­gion (one of whom works for wine mag­a­zine De­can­ter), it is sourced from 60-year-old vines grown bio­dy­nam­i­cally on gneiss soil – an un­usual type of very hard rock. This re­sults in su­per­charged fruit which man­ages to be flavour­some yet still el­e­gant and fra­grant, with much fuller tex­ture than most Mus­cadets.
