Domaine de l'Ecu 'Granite' Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2017

John Gilman 93 "The 2014 Orthogneiss cuvée from Domaine de l’Écu is superb on both the nose and palate, wafting from the glass in a pure and complex constellation of lemon, bread fruit, gentle maritime scents, spring flowers and a very complex base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep,

91  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Advocate 90 "The pale colored 2013 Muscadet Sevre et Maine Orthogneiss has a precise and citric fruit aroma of candied limes, dried apples and brown pips. The palate is quite rich but also piquant, fresh and salty, the finish complex and long. This is another must-taste Muscadet from this
