Folle Blanche 2017, Pierre Luneau-Papin, Loire, France

Sold out.

flinty, tangerine, stone fruit
You may have heard of Muscadet, but this is what the locals drink - right on the Altlantic coast, an area as famous for its platters of seafood as its wine. The Folle Blanche grape makes a bone-dry, mineral wine, with an inherent tartness which can be too much if not handled carefully. Luneau-Papin, though, is one of the most respected vignerons in the area, and this wine has a delicious freshness, high tangerine notes and a salty citrus tang which pairs deliciously with food.
