Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 'Le Fief du Breil' 2011, Jo Landron, Loire Valley, France
Muscadet? What? Undervalued, underrated, under the radar — a savvy choice today due to an improvement in quality across the region in recent years. Smoky minerality, laser beam focus, a whiff of anise. Jo Landron also has a quite spectacular 'tache: a true humdinger.
