Jancis Robinson – Two great vintages in the Loire

● Jérémie Huchet, Dom de la Chauvinière 2015 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine
Stony and pear fruited but with terrific intensity on the palate, the fine, pear-like texture gives this really impressive length. There’s some stone-fruit richness but overall it is the textural finesse and complexity that carries this to a long finish. Bone-dry and with a sour stony aftertaste that adds to the mouth-watering effect. (JH) 12% Drink 2016-2019 – 17

● Jérémie Huchet, Sur Lie 2015 Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine
More stony citrus than the Domaine de la Chauvinière, chalky, sweet/sour intensity and so full of flavour yet without intense fruit flavours – saline and crisp and beautifully textured. Very crisp finish – which is masked by the fact that the wine is not chilled. (JH) 12% Drink 2016-2018 – 17
