    I guess in some cases you do get what you pay for.

    I disagree: re. the ’09, I found this Muscadet to be delightfully dry and citrusy. It’s worth twice the pice.

  • Thanks for the feedback… sounds like a re-taste is in order. I’ll get an ’09 and/or ’08 and see how it fares!

    Clinton, looking forward to your new review. I tried the 2009 and thought it was OK … just OK.
