Light emerald straw color. Herbal aromas of meyer lemon zest and bay leaf with a round, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length cantaloupe, halvah, underripe orchard fruit, and apricot muffin finish. A very dry, savory Muscadet that will elevate any shellfish dish.

Loire Muscadet

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.
