*held up in the lcbo lab due to a conflict between European and Canadian 'organic' classification standards (we would like to hope that a single standard can be negotiated one day!)
Grand Fief De La Cormeraie Muscadet Sèvre Et Maine Sur Lie 2014
Score 88 "Aromatically reserved, but bright, sharp and nicely focused on the palate, with notable saline character and lightly honeyed-waxy notes on the finish. Perfectly crisp and light, appealing and infinitely drinkable. Textbook stuff, and yet another fine Muscadet value." Tasted March 2016. Value Rating: *** John Szabo, WineAlign
Score 88 "An organic Muscadet with verve, liveliness and spritz. Appealing racy notes of lemon and lime don the palate along with a briny mineral character and white pepper on the finish. Great typicity." Tasted March 2016.
