video review: wine of the week

27th October 2013


Moulin Blanc, Blanc de Blancs 2012, France
The star of four terrific wines just tasted from the Loire's Moulin Blanc, this dry white table wine is composed of 65% Chenin Blanc and 35% Chardonnay and is made in a gently 'natural wine' style. There's a golden hint to the pale green colour. Really inviting,gently yeasty and salty nose, with a burgeoning sense of honey and almond richness amongst the fresh, ozone and apple aromas. Just delicious on the palate: massively tangy and vital, a core of apple cut by a squeeze of ripe lemon or orange maybe, the dry, nut husk quality hinting at a Fino Sherry without any real sense of the oxidation. It's the delicious core of sweet fruit that pushes through, nutty notes gathering again in the very long finish. Superb. For more information please watch the video. £14.95, ten-acre.com, quote Mourat10 for a 10% discount on all Moulin Blanc wines whilst stocks last, exclusively for wine-pages visitors.
