Description: As readers may recall, the Terre de Pierre bottling from Domaine Luneau-Papin hails from the Butte de la Roche vineyard, which is planted on volcanic soils that are extremely rare in Muscadet. The bottling was first launched in the 2008 vintage and this tenth incarnation in 2017 is flat out exceptional. The refined and complex bouquet offers up a fine blend of bread fruit, a touch of pear, complex leesy tones, even more complex minerality, dried flowers and a topnote of ocean breeze. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and mineral-driven, with a superb core, excellent complexity and grip and a long, zesty and perfectly balanced finish. This is the finest bottle of 2017 Muscadet I have yet to taste from the vintage! (Drink between 2018-2045)
