Overview

Some of the greatest values in French wine, as well as the “newest,” are the cru communaux of Muscadet. Chief among these is Clisson which comes from vineyards along the southern edge of the Muscadet region. Sourced from profoundly granitic soils that are some of the oldest in France, these wines have a lash of savory acidity and a remarkable longevity.  These vines are nearing 50 years old and their roots dig deep into the granite bedrock making for wines that are rich without being fat but piercingly mineral above all else.
