The granite soil of Clisson is a special part of the Muscadet region. It gives a wine that is structured, firm and needing to age. With five years, this wine is just ready to drink. The white fruits are integrating into the tight texture and leaving room for minerality. Drink now, although the wine will continue to age until 2016.
