One of the most fascinating things about wine for me is that I am always, always learning.  Last week, I assisted at a wine tasting at Cook’s Warehouse in Atlanta. We tasted 6 wines from the Loire Valley, 5 of them under $20.00. I was very excited to taste this Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur lie and was not disappointed. It reminded of the month I spent in Angers enjoying oysters along with a few glasses of these wines from around Nantes.  In this video, the vintner, Pierre Lieubeau shows us where his vineyard is situated and explains  more about the soil of his vineyard.

The wine itself is a perfect expression of this AOC. It was citrusy but not tart.  Tasters smelled and tasted hints of green apples and everyone enjoyed the minerality. The price point was very appealing as well at $12.00. Imported by Jon David Headrick Selections.
