Tasting Notes

Producer, Christophe Hallereau wasn't interested in being in the wine business until he inherited his family vineyards. Still maintaining his day job, he has become a weekend warrior winemaker maintaining the property and the cellar library. With 8 Ha in the village of Vallet, he now runs the local association of growers. All wines are fermented in concrete with native yeasts and minimal additions of SO2. Subsoils in the region are igneous with granite, gneiss and mica. Vallet is a pending cru appellation and is known for its clay based soils. The wines are racy and mineral driven. A recent staff seminar, we tasted wines going back to the mid-80s. The wines maintained freshness and mineral character proving these wines have the ability to age.

    A light and crisp wine, with a touch of salinity, that is fun, versatile, and I cannot think of anything else to eat fresh Oyster with right now.

    This is such a lovely, easy drinking wine at a great price point. Domaine De La Chaboissiere does Muscadet like no one else, with incredible aging potential and balance. Squeaky clean, but with depth and presence, this wine has lingering minerality and crisp notes of lemon peel and wet stone.

    I recently re-tasted this delightfully inexpensive little Muscadet and was reminded of how good this wine tastes. Even with the long aging on the lees this wine has everything people are looking for in a Muscadet. Bright, clean, a little floral and saline characteristics all come together with plenty of acid and lift. There is a surprising amount of fruit weight here but with an incredibly clean finish. This is definitely a bottling that one could keep around for tons of occasions.

    Demand for Muscadet has definitely been on the rise of late so we've not only answered the call but also exceeded expectations with the arrival of this impressive direct import. It's a traditional style Muscadet that's very floral with additional scents of seashell and pure saline and mineral notes on the palate. Good weight and texture belie great acidity as well. We're expecting a lot of repeat customers when it comes to this one.

    From a sustainable producer, this has got to be the best "sur lie" I have ever tasted for the price. Although the wine spent 18 months on the lees, it remains very light with lifted fruit, zesty acidity, and the characterizing touch of salinity. Great with oysters, but if none are attainable, french fries will do just fine.
