Muscadet "Clos des Allées" 2016 - Domaine Luneau-Papin


 

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!

15/20 "A ripe and juicy wine, with a sunny sensation giving body and vinosity to this beautiful meal white."

Wine Enthusiast

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)

Great muscadet from top producer

Very good wine for aperitif or meal, both mineral and fruity. Hard to guess it is actually a Muscadet! I would recommend it
