What would Chardonnay taste like in Muscadet soils? You guessed it—lean and bright, with a breezy blast of Atlantic brine on the finish. It will work fine with oysters, but at this price you might consider keeping a bottle chilled at all times in the event of impromptu thirst. The suggestions of white flowers and crisp apple remind us of the variety in question.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
