Muscadet Grandlieu Sur Lie 2017 Domaine des Herbauges Jerome Choblet
Tippity top Muscadet with great balance and poise. Refreshingly dry but with racy zippy acidity as well as some lees derived complexity, this is top quality wine at an entry-level price. Not just for fish but has enough fruit to be drunk on its own ( screwcap too)
Jerome Choblet of Domaine des Herbauges is at the forefront of a new wave of Nantais producers who have eschewed the dusty insularity of the Muscadet region in favour of flavoursome wines which showcase their heritage but pack more of a punch at a very reasonable price. His Classic Sur Lie is a case in point and should win people back to the region with its elegance and balance. His entry level chardonnay is a revelation.
