Calvados just might be my favorite winter time sipper! Thanks for the producer recommendations Michael Markarian, Daniel Veit, Sean Dowling, Darla Hoffmann, Jeremy Eubanks and Frederic Monnery.
This week: Sub zones of Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine
What are they and what are the soils/characteristics/etc plus name a producer of each.
Any idea when the other 7 crus (Chateau Thebaud, Champtoceaux, Goulaine, La Haye Fouassière, Mouzillon-Tillières, Monnières-Saint-Fiacre and Vallet) start coming on line? I've seen a couple of them on labels already (an unhealthy obsession with Muscadet will find oneself in strange places), buy they are't official.
Some favorite bottlings:
Clisson- Domaine de la Fruitier
Gorges- Vincent Caille
Let Pallet- ??? The one Ryan mentioned is the only I've ever seen. It's good, but this is clearly a second tier Cru.
