2018 Gros-Plant du Pays Nantais, Domaine de la Mortaine, Loire, France
£10.50 £9.50 per bottle
Made by Muscadet hero Sébastian Chéreau, this delicate, bone dry Gros Plant (otherwise known as Folle Blanche in the south west of France) is a delightful creation. With the same flavour silhouette as a keen, vivacious Muscadet, but with a slightly trimmed price tag, this is the ultimate apero white for parties and gatherings. While Muscadet is a more popular grape/wine in the western Loire, pockets of Gros Plant still exist and this is a tip-top example. The ozone, citrus zest and wet pebble freshness of this tidy, little wine make the mouth water and if you would like to find a perfect partner for sushi and sashimi look no further. Of course, the French drink this curiosity with a plateau de fruits de mer, so whether you want to stay French go Japanese this wine is your new best friend.
