The Benchmark Muscadet:
2019 Pepiere Muscadet de Sevre-et-Maine Clos des Briords

Posted by Joe Salamone

Clos des Briords is one of the most rock-solid and beloved values of French wine.

There's no doubt focusing on the wine's value is myopic. Far beyond its price tag, it needs to be said that Briords has served as a prime example of the heights that Muscadet can reach and how well it can age. 

Clos des Briords takes Muscadet close to its Platonic ideal of jagged saline minerality. 

All of this goes a long way in explaining why wine lovers of all stripes go deep on each vintage of Briords. 

There's a beautiful honesty to Briords. You might find more powerful and richer Muscadets, but Briords is unrivaled when it comes to luminous transparency and cut.

The 2019 Briords is stunningly pure and incisively mineral. They harvested early in the warm 2019 vintage and it shows in the wine's bright and snappy personality. The total package is a really appealing combination of presence, punch, and pointed verve. It's very compelling. 

This is an impressive vintage of Briords and one that seems poised to age beautifully. We suggest taking advantage of the special 6-pack pricing. This is a vintage to go long on for drinking today and holding onto for the next decade.
