I can't think of a better (or even as good) wine I've tasted for $20.
Massive minerality with the austerity that goes along with that, balanced by a truly rich Champagne-like yeastiness (Marc Ollivier reportedly gave this wine more lees-time than is techinically allowed by the Sevre-et-Maine wine laws). It's feathery soft yet maintains a crystalline focus.
I suspect it has decades to go in evolution.
Majorly impressive wine.
I'm getting a case.
It's $20.

Great notes, and we'll look for it. Do you know, by chance, who brings it in?

Looks like Polaner, also (maybe).

I've been happy with the Pepiere Muscadet I've tried in the past.

If you see this one, try it. I like his other wines as well, but this is a very different bottle.
