    Winemaker's Notes:

    Formerly known as Granite de Clisson, the 2009 Clisson is the third release of this very special cuvee. The granite in the soil surrounding the village of Clisson has a higher percentage of mica, silica and quartz than in Briords or other granite-based Muscadets; resulting in greater minerality and complexity of the wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Marc Ollivier grows this at a two-acre parcel of 60- to 90-year-old vines planted on the granite of the Massive Armoricain; he and several other growers on this terroir now create special bottlings under the Granite de Clisson label. This wine ages for 24 months on the lees, developing a brilliant depth of flavor that sets it apart from its siblings. The color is platinum, the scent a compelling mix of lime, orange blossom, fig and sage. There's a brothy richness, like an infusion of lobster shells, a ripe juiciness that's focused and firmed up along its silken texture. Destined to become a classic...
