Basic info: Chateau Thebaud, Clos des Morines, Muscadet Severe et Mare, 2012
Price estimate: $23 (Chamber St. Wines)
Look: Pale yellow, translucent. Medium legs.
Smell: Lemon, honey and some herbs.
Taste: Round, tart, crisp. notes of lemon, grapefruit and melon. Not sweet, but too dry either.
Conclusions: Good wine, but would not go out of my way for it. It is a great sipping wine.
Other notes: I’m sure I’ve had muscadet before, but I can’t remember what I thought of it before. I liked this wine, but it did remind me of chardonnay a bit. It’s a soft white, which is nice, but it isn’t my favorite.
From the bottle: From Chamber Street:“subtle aromas of dried pears, herbs, citrus, almond and stone, quite subtle and elegant.” 12% alcohol by volume.
