TN: 2010 Chereau-Carre Muscadet Cuvee des Cepes Centenaires Comte Leloup Chasseloir..


Third bottle of 3, well soaked cork, opened 30 mins, see previous CTs.
Still shows a lemony green tinge, nose mineral tones but slightly vegetal so not a good sign. Some do age however but guess depands on storage.
Pear, mineral, citrus on the entry but short finish and not a great showing. Shrimp kebabs helped somewhat but not too profound.

TN: 2012 Grand Fief de la Cormeraie Muscadet de Sevre-et-Maine Sur Lie.

First bottle of two, purchased say 3 yrs ago, $26 Cdn. Good natural cork, 12% alc.
Took a good hour to open and show its stuff! Light golden color, closed nose at first but then minerals, lemon, melon and pear..really shone on day 2.
Dry as I expected, mineral tones on entry. Nice acidity, good balance still, citrus finish with apple and pear, "enough complexity?" from across the table. Think best to drink now, went well with sauteed pork dumplings.
