Domaine de Barroubio - Muscat de Saint-Jean-de-Minervois 2017
100% Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains
Considered by many to be the greatest terroir for Muscat grapes, Saint Jean de Minervois, produces some of the best Muscat wines in the world. Wines from this terroir have a delicate nose with hints of orange blossom, peach, and apricot. While the wine is sweet and unctuous in the mouth, it also has bracing minerality. This bright minerality helps to balance the wine, making it appear less sweet than it is in reality. So, even with 142 grams of sugar per liter, this wine has a lively, bright, finish which leaves the palate refreshed and ready for the next sip.
