Brilliant pale light gold color. Baked aromas and flavors of hawaiian bread with brunost, dried citrus wheels, unripe pear, and oyster shell with a round, lively, dry light body and an engaging, medium-long finish displaying notes of champagne vinaigrette, lemon sorbet, kumquat, and melon and nectarine with fine, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. An ethereal Muscadet that will pair too perfectly with oysters.

Loire Muscadet

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Muscadet from the Loire is a clean and snappy white that is renowned for its ability to go with shellfish. Very rarely oaked, it makes an excellent aperitif and should be consumed within a year or two of the vintage.
