Tasting notes
Grapefruit, pear confiture, sweet lime, and candied ginger. The 2021 Muscadelle is aromatically intense and extremely layered. The wine opens to ripe apricot, honeysuckle, dry mango, and potpourri. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with great tension and precision. Dry, but with remarkable sweetness, volume, and a buttery texture, the wine showcases a wide variety of flavor profiles, from citrus to dried tropical fruits, all framed by the perfect amount oak spice. This barrel fermented Muscadelle finishes extremely long, angular, and with a touch of grip. A hedonistic, unique wine, that you can enjoy now or in the next 8 years.

91pts - International Winer Report /Jeremy Young: "Another unique variety of wine from Washington State, the 2021 Lawrence Estate Muscadelle sports a unique and enticing nose of apricot skin, gooseberry, honeysuckle, jasmine flower, and beeswax. Medium-bodied and a touch oily in the mouth, it’s vinified in a dry style and delivers a waxy, stone-fruit-driven finish. "

He worked in Chile for a few years and in 2011 he decided to start traveling the world on a quest to learn new wine-making techniques. After several harvests in Oceania, Europe and Africa, he settled down in France, to do his post degrees at the Universities of Bordeaux and Montpellier. He also performed for two years as a Maître de Chai for one of the oldest and most reputable wineries in Condrieu and Côte-Rôtie.
