Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine, Granit de Château-Thébaud, Dom de la Chauvinière 2010

LW02810

A brilliantly inviting nose of cooked quince and apples, with a hint of manuka honey, the palate has more of the same but with citrus acidity and a mineral note. Fantastic.

Press Reviews

A chalk missile with a lemon-peel nose-cone.
Olly Smith, The Daily Mail, 3rd December 2017

One of the more expensive wines in their collection, Jérémie Huchet/Dom de la Chauvinière/Ch Thébaud, Granit 2010 Muscadet-Sevre et Maine, is also stunning and also soil-specific (guess which?). It has benefited from six years in bottle and taken on far more flavour than the price suggests even if it is quite different in style from the simple, youthful, transparent juiciness of the Bonnets' young wine. My tasting note:

Still full of grip albeit with a slightly aged waxiness to it. Admirable proof of Muscadet's ageability. But still fresh and exremely appetising and juicy, with some saltiness. Great stuff and only 12%! VGV (only £14).

I commend both these wines to you wholeheartedly.’

…shows the fascinating, smoky and earthy complexity the finest cru Muscadet can achieve with age – as good as premier cru Meursault? Why not!
Harry Eyres, Country Life, 3rd July 2017

Muscadet growers have been having a tough time of it in the last few years, with devastating frosts this year and last making hard economic times even harder, but the wines, counterintuitively, have never been better. A generation of growers, going all out for quality, is demonstrating that good Muscadet trades the showiness of more popular wines for subtle complexity. And the best wines – witness this granite-grown 2010 – develop with age. It’s still mouthwateringly fresh and dry, but honey and almond-nougat now fill out the lemon, apple and salty intensity. Matching seafood is Muscadet’s first calling, but Jérémie Huchet’s 2010 Granit also has the depth to partner chicken with tarragon mayonnaise, vitello tonnato and creamy cheeses such as chaource. If you want to dip a toe in the Muscadet waters with a younger vintage, Tanners has plenty to offer.
