Guy Bossard Muscadet Cuvee Classic 2008
Now I have never tried a Muscadet before so I was interested to try this when it came across my desk. On the nose you get a huge pong of oxidative notes that muddy the wines message but on the palate there is a bit of lemon rind mixed with melon, peach and spice dusted with icing sugar. While the flavours are interesting the oxidative note masks the true glory of the wine. I hope this was just a bad bottle and not the norm for this label.
Drink: Now or over the next few years.
