Brilliant straw color. Aromas of apple, mango preserve, cinnamon-dusted challah, and lemon zest with tarragon and thyme with a satiny, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and an amusing, medium-long salted yellow plum and lime zest finish. A delectable and serious Muscadet with a heavy focus on toasty lees notes.

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.
