Eric Chevalier 2011 Muscadet Cotes De Grand Lieu Sur Lie

Want a beautiful, summer wine at a really attractive price (definitely a rhetorical question)?  That is exactly what I found when I picked up a bottle of Eric Chevalier’s 2011 Muscadet Cotes De Grand Lieu Sur Lie.  Imported by Kermit Lynch, this wine is naturally fermented and unfiltered.  For a price of around $14, this wine shouldn’t be missed!

Tasting Notes

This lovely wine pours a pale gold in the glass.  The nose has gentle aromas of lemon peel and green apple.  Racing acidity and fresh minerality envelope your palate along with tastes of sweet melon and citrus.  A delicious wine worthy of being enjoyed now! (11.5% alcohol)

My Wine Rating – A-

Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with summer salads, oysters, or soft shell crab.

  1. Muscatel is a monovarietal wine that not has the ability to aged than one year from the production and now is the good time to enjoy it. Like it’s name the wine must be full of sweet aromas and tastes like a Mediteranean, melon and a water melon, of course it’s a summer wine. Cheers from Athens. Greece is the most beautiful place in the world for your vacations to taste delicious foods with an excellent marriage with a wine.
