At Noble Grape we just love wines like this. Here we have an unsung producer who is making Muscadet with absolute precision, and we can't believe that the name Philippe Guerin is not yet rolling off the tongues of the Loire cognoscenti. This Muscadet comes from vines grown in the comune of Vallet where the soil tends towards limestone rather than the schist of further west. Philippe ages this wine on its lees (yes, this is fully deserving of the term 'Sur Lie') for 36 months, all that time gaining texture and complexity. This wine perhaps has more in common with Premier Cru or Grand Cru Chablis than the majority of Muscadet.
