Produced from vines on granite soil, this Muscadet is elevated from the unique variety that is, Melon de Bourgogne. A grape with a soft character, which allows it to be a true expression of the terroir. The melon de bourgogne grape matures slightly later than usual, resulting in an ample and harmonious and crisp finish. Muscadet (Melon) is a wine for those who love anything-but-fruity wines. They are lean, green, and have a fascinating almost saline-like quality to the taste.

Serve it with shellfish, seafood, fish, or as an aperitif. Classic status for a reason, absolutely sublime with fresh oysters.

"Super-fresh nose with lovely grapefruit, melon and a touch of musky grape-juice scent too. Beautiful salinity and refreshment on the finish, although the acid is quite soft and fluffy. Medium body, reasonable persistence. A great example of classic Muscadet in soft focus.
