The Parentière Fraîcheur Iodée de L'Atlantique, which roughly translates as "Atlantic sea-spray" is made from Gros Plant (aka Folle Blanche) grown on gabbro soils near Vallet in the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine region. Domaine de la Parentière is a tiny estate which has been practicing organic agriculture for more than 40 years—the grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with wild yeasts and the wines are never chaptalized, remaining light, mineral and refreshing.  Not only does it's name translate to the Iodized Freshness from the Atlantic, but that's exactly what it evokes upon tasting...there you are standing on the jetty in some coastal French town in Brittany where the seafood boats are docked, slurping down oysters freshly shucked in the early morning light while being slapped in the face by the "Atlantic Sea Spray!" The wine shows subtle aromas of stone, citrus confit, almond and  minerals. The palate is bone dry, with hints of granny smith, citrus and stone, and the finish is clean, long and refreshing. "Fruity" is not a word you would apply to this wine, but subtle, elegant and refreshing define it well - exhilarating!  Giselle Hamburg/David Lillie
