6x Clos de La Senaigerie Muscadet 2015
Please note: this is now the 2015 vintage.
A superb Muscadet from the mouth of Loire, by 3rd generation winemakers Luc and Jerome Choblet.
This particular area utilises the Melon de Bourgogne grape — seen virtually nowhere else — and produces wines of penetrating minerality and acidity, with fresh, clean, citrusy flavors that emphatically evoke the sea.
As with most top-quality Muscadet, the “Clos de la Senaigerie” is aged on its yeasts, adding extra dimensions of flavour and texture. It’s difficult to find a white wine at this price that is so refreshing and charming, and speaks so clearly of its place of origin.
Whenever there has been a particularly delicate fish or seafood dish at Gauthier Soho this year, sommelier Pierrick has reached for this Muscadet as a superb all-encompassing pairing.
Around town, it’s also served with oysters at the esteemed Belgravia private restaurant Boisdale, scallops at Piccadilly Seafood offshoot Hawksmoor Air St, and to be nicely transatlantic - it’s on the list at the New York TriBeCa institution The Odeon (at a whopping $42 a bottle!).
If you were limited to only one white wine this Christmas, this Muscadet would be a sound choice.
