Mephisto - 2018 - Fred Niger

Domaine de l'Ecu

Flattering, round, and expressive nose,with notes of blackberries, strawberries, redcurrants, white pepper. A smooth attack, the mid-palate is taut yet charming, tannins still tight yet velvety. Excellent volume, rich, deep, delicate, chiselled fruit, notes of sweet spices. Worth decanting.

Fred bought Domaine de l'Écu in 2010, with its perfect soils cultivated organically since 1972, then certified biodynamic by DEMETER in 1998. He’s been collaborating with Guy Bossard since 2014, the master of Muscadet. The pairing is simply miraculous. Fred, a novice at winegrowing but an unparalleled taster, knows exactly what he wants and what he intends to do for wine in the Muscadet....
