should i keep it?
Why not! Most Muscadet are not meant for ageing as their lively and refreshing fruity aromas rapidly fade. However, Domaine de l'Écu Muscadet wines are the exception to the rule. This Muscadet should keep well for as long as 4 or 5 years and gain complexity with nutty and honeyed aromas.
serving temperature
8-10ºC.

A few hours in the drudge should do it.
Why we have
SELECTED THIS WINE
Muscadet is often the cheapest wine one a wine list, and sometimes - unfortunately - deservingly so. Too many Muscadets are simple, light and unchallenging wines and - as Muscadet is utterly unfashionable and prices very low - it is not an easy thing for winemakers to take the necessary steps to produce high-quality wines.

However, at Domaine de l'Écu, the importance of high-quality viticulture has been understood for a long time as the vineyard has been farmed organically since 1975.

Domaine de l'Écu offers you Muscadet at its best: a fresh, elegant and delicate cool climate white wine yet with some mineral complexity and ageing potential.
