He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, light wheat straw color. Lots of citrus, cantaloupe melon and grass aromas with a touch of floral. Clean, fresh, smooth & refreshing with plenty of chalky mineral, citrus and peach flavors all the way through the long salty finish. Good paired with the garden salad, but superb drinking alone after the dinner too. A lively Muscadet that’s a GREAT buy…two thumbs up from me!!!
She said: Medium yellow color, clear, lots of well moving legs. Pleasing light floral aroma lead to a mouth-feel that was somewhat chalky or creamy while continuing the delicious aroma. The long finish continued the flavors and ended with a unique and pleasant dusty taste. I was not as taken by the wine with the salad, but thought it was simply delicious as a sipping wine. A very good buy at $13, and a good choice for a casual snack or week-night dinner.Comments: Learn more about the Domaine Bonnet-Huteau.
