Gilbert Chon 2021 'Clos de la Chapelle' Muscadet-sur-lie, Vieilles Vignes

A wine of unusual authority and texture, but unmistakable origin, from schist-grown vines over 70 years old in a 4 hectare plot. Muscadet for those who appreciate fruit as well as its authentic saline minerality. The 2020 vintage is simply exceptional in its poise between perfectly ripe fruit and backbone. 2021 reflects the stress and struggle of a cooler and more “electric” vintage in a style that will please old-timers!
