We've got a lime one here.

Domaine de la Louvetrie, Muscadet Sevre et Maine, 2004. 

It's not everyday that I get to drink a 2004 Muscadet, but its not everyday that I get to hang out with Simon, Simon Cocks as he's known to his friends.

What a beautiful lovely treat this was. Undertones of this, overtones of that. Complex and rewarding to drink. Lime and briny salty flavors dominate with yeasty notes and an every so slight floral touch. What is that? white flowers of some sort? I wish I knew botany better. But alas, I know not. 

$14.99 Larchmont Wine and Spirits.
