The last few years have seen a transition in this great estate, from Michel Bregeon, one of the heros of Muscadet, to his capable colleague, Fred Lailler. The estate retains Michel's name and continues his work largely unchanged, but with a gradual shift to organic agriculture. Always a unique and powerful Muscadet due to the Gabbro terroir and clay topsoils and Michel's careful hand-harvesting and wild-yeast fermentations, the 2012 Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie is a great success for Fred Lailler. The aromas are complex with stone, citrus, licorice and almond. The palate has great depth and balance at 12% alcohol showing citrus confit, pear, stone and saline acids, with terrific length. Drinking beautifully now this should improve over the next few years. Of course serve with oysters, cod, flounder and fluke, but also with fuller flavored fish - monkfish, halibut, striped bass and roast chicken as well. Let's hope that other cuvees with longer sur-lie aging will be released by Fred Lailler from this excellent vintage.

Muscadet is most well known as an oyster wine, but can accent any fresh or shellfish.
