Comte Leloup from 100-year-old vines at Bernard Chéreau's Château Chasseloir is, we think, the best Muscadet there is. The grapes are picked by hand and aged with their lees to give richness and more body than you usually find in a Muscadet. As Hugh Johnson has written, Muscadet has everything that should make serious wine-drinkers happy. It is a total individual, its tang of the ocean... perfectly matched to its ordained role as the seafood wine par excellence (Hugh Johnson on Wine: Good Bits from 55 Years of Scribbling, 2016).

This wine is bottled and wrapped in gold wire netting, maintaining their local tradition. It is firm with lots of mature fruit - almost vigorous. It is rich and refreshing with complex flavours, a very great muscadet that we should all be drinking, as we do in the hot summer evenings.

This wine is bottled and wrapped in gold wire netting, maintaining their local tradition. It is firm with lots of mature fruit - almost vigorous. It is rich and refreshing with complex flavours, and a very serious Muscadet that is worth a place in your cellar.

I cant describe wine flavours but this one is very good

"As we all know, a Muscadet keeps the doctor away and the 2016 Comte Leloup du Ch. de Chasseloir Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie is the perfect preventative medicine. Made from hand-harvested, century-old Melon de Bourgogne vines the oldest in the region the wine has weight, depth, texture and character. It has apple freshness, too, and is extremely drinkable."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
"From 100-year old vines, this lees-aged Melon de Bourgogne has a golden colour after four years in bottle, and a succulent, nicely maturing character of waxy lemon rind and juicy apple, with a hint of ocean spray. The palate has that juiciness too, a hint of nutty maturity, but lovely mouth-filling texture and balance. Long and delicious."
Tom Cannvan, Wine-pages.com
