Parentage of the grape: Melon de Bourgogne is a cross between Pinot and Gouais blanc.

History of the grape: As its name suggests, Melon de Bourgogne comes from Burgundy. By the Middle Ages, it had spread to the central Loire as well. Because it was not considered to be as noble as Chardonnay, it was outlawed in Burgundy at various times during the 16th and 17th centuries, but it is still grown in small quantities in Vezelay, where it is Read more »

Melon de Bourgogne on Snooth

  • Château la Noe Sur Lie 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice for the price, and crisp and refreshing straight out of the fridge. Flattens quickly, though, and exponentially less interesting the closer to room temperature it gets. Read More

  • Chateau de la Chesnaie Muscadet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly sour and soapy in the nose with a dash of tropical fruit. Very nice, full flavor - sour with a bit of melon, some fruity sweetness, and a touch of soap (unfortunately). Well priced at $12. Read More

  • Château de la Ragotière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2006

    Snoothrank:

    There may have been something wrong with the bottle we bought, however, this is the worst wine I have ever had in my life. We actually poured our glasses back into the bottle and left it to be thrown out in our hotel. Read More

  • Jardin de la Fruitière Domaine de la Fruitière 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very bright and dry on the first sip. Nose is lemon and grapefruit. Flavor really arrived after being open for about an hour. Then green apples and crab apple flavors emerged. Very smooth, well balanced, sharp acid. Great for french soft cheese, shellfish, creamy or buttery seafood dishes. Tremendous value, drinks like a more expensive wine. Read More

  • Chateau la Noe Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Tangerine/Tang nose, very dry, with flavors of grass & grapefruit. Definitely has a bit of acidic zip. (had just a taste at a tasting) Read More

  • Clos de Beauregard Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Light in color. On the nose, yeast and green apple and some kind of grass, a clay like minerality reminding me of the red clay in Georgia, and then very small amount a berry flavored candy-Sweedish fish perhaps. Bright acidity at first with apple and lemon then a rock and clay minerality in the middle which then fades to a baking bread on the... Read More

    Wine review by Carly Wray


  • I tried to search for a forum about this but I couldn't find one, even though I'm sure there is somewhere. Put simply, I am extremely confused about French Wines - I know they don't put the varietal on the label but that's about it. How do you know what you're buying? Can anyone give me any details or direct me to any good references about this ... Read More
