Although Muscadet is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape ("Melon of Burgundy"), this westernmost grape growing region of the Loire Valley is almost 350 miles from Burgundy as the crow flies. The variety did originate there, but was mostly torn out as Chardonnay grew in popularity.

Muscadet is located near the mouth of the Loire, just inland from the Atlantic Ocean. The classic pairing for the wine is moules frites, but I also drink it with any lighter fare like salads, hard cheeses, sandwiches, etc. Lemon, green apple, and salty minerality make this a versatile white.

100% Melon de Bourgogne. Serve cold.
