Muscadet ‘Abstraction #1’ 2020, Philippe Guerin, Loire Valley
Muscadet is having something of a renaissance right now. This crystalline example from Philippe Guérin is a lip-smacking palate cleanser, packed with zesty, pure fruit. The pithy grapefruit notes are balanced by sweeter impressions of white grape and green melon and the high acidity pierces through bringing a wonderful tensile quality to the palate.
Philippe Guérin has been operating for some time in the Nantais – the Loire Valley’s most westerly sub-region in France. It wasn’t until 2018 however that his wines were first brought over to the UK and we are stoked to be working with him. The family domain boasts around 30 hectares of vineyards, with over two-thirds of those dedicated to the sub-region’s flagship wine style: Muscadet. Philippe represents the fifth generation of his family to manage the estate and has gone some way to push the boundaries in terms of style and quality output for this part of the world.
