2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

9-1-09 - At the Carlton AVA tasting Monday in downtown Portland, this was the standout of the event for me. The scent is all peach,citrus,and minerals. Flavors open with a bit of sweetness, peaches and nectarines. After that initial impression, citrus, white flowers, minerals, and sweet spices combine into a delectably complex mélange. - Jean

Melon is the exclusive grape of Muscadet and is extremely rare to find grown anywhere outside of France. Lean and focused, yet rich and mouth-filling, this wine is layered with spices and minerals. Its finish is savory and briny, which makes it perfect with fresh oysters. - the winery
