Until a few years ago, Muscadet was suffering from a cheap reputation, struggling to get more recognition. Thanks to a few leaders focusing on quality, the appellation has improved a lot and has now become really fashionable. Prices have however remained reasonable, and these wines generally offer a great value for money. Clos des Allées is the upmarket cuvée of the estate, made from grapes coming from a single plot of vines. It exhibits an excellent concentration thanks to old vines and 9 months of ageing on the lees. Hints of greengage and yellow plum, mouth filling with a crackle of white spice... this is a bottle we really fell for!

|What experts say|
15/20 "A ripe and juicy wine, with a sunny sensation giving body and vinosity to this beautiful meal white."
91/100 Editor's Choice "The home vineyard of the Luneau family, this five-acre property dates back at least to the 18th century. The wine is ripe, fruity and fragrant. It has a rich background of yellow fruits as well as fresh acidity. With its tight texture, it should be aged." (previous vintage)
