"Clisson is one of the newly designated crus of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, a wine that has extra density and ripeness, with the rules demanding extra aging. This bottling is beautifully mature, made from organically grown grapes. It retains acidity, but with nutty richness from the long time on lees. Drink now."
"Aged two years on lees.
More mineral and precise than their Château-Thébaud, and perhaps more Muscadet-esque as a result – has that saline, tangy quality. Lovely persistence and precision. A touch of mushroom too – proper complexity and interest. Delicious! 17+/20 points. (RH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Some of the greatest values in French wine, as well as the “newest,” are the cru communaux of Muscadet. Chief among these is Clisson which comes from vineyards along the southern edge of the Muscadet region. Sourced from profoundly granitic soils that are some of the oldest in France, these wines have a lash of savory acidity and a remarkable longevity. These vines are nearing 50 years old and their roots dig deep into the granite bedrock making for wines that are rich without being fat but piercingly mineral above all else.
