Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine De L'aujardiere (Eric Chevalier) Domaine De L'aujardiere (Eric Chevalier) Muscadet Cotes De Grand Lieu Sur Lie Le Clos De La 2014

Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Delightfully delicate at just 11.5 percent alcohol, this bottling displays a subtle but surprising sense of textural creaminess – perhaps it underwent a bit of malolactic transformation – conveying an alluring richness to a palate that evokes a meadow’s worth of flowers and greenery. Hints of almond and mineral salts add to the attractions of a low-key but soothing and refreshing finish. Here is an utterly distinctive and charming Muscadet, and one that wouldn’t surprise me if it proved my assessment of ageability too conservative. (Vinous)

Winery Domaine De L'aujardiere (Eric Chevalier)

Region: Loire Valley

Despite being most closely associated with fine white wines made with the excellent Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes which thrive there, the region of the Loire Valley in France also produces several other quality wines. The sub-region of Chinon is highly esteemed for its excellent Cabernet Franc based red wines, packed full of unique character and excellent fruity flavors, and the sparkling crémant wines of the region are adored by people all over the world. The region benefits enormously from the fertile valley it sits in, and the oceanic breezes which blow over the area, cooling the vines and helping them reach full and balanced levels of ripeness. The Loire Valley is an ancient wine region, with a viticultural history which stretches back two thousand years and is stronger than ever today.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
