‘Vignes du Bourg’ Muscadet

A light straw yellow hue with flecks of green. This is Julien’s slightly easier going, crisp Muscadet. Dynamite, delicate aromas of sea spray, iodine, citrus zest, orange blossom and white flowers start things off. While not the ager that the other Braud wines might be, this has no problem hanging around in your cellar for five years as it gains in intricacy, but it’s absolutely stunning right now.
