Muscadet is made from Melon grapes in the region in the 17th century by Dutch wine traders to provide a source of brandy. Today it is a light, tangy wine that is perfect with fish of any kind and a pure delight with oysters.

Produced from the melon grape variety in the panoramic Loire Valley. Lively acidity and fresh, clean flavors make this popular dry white an ideal partner with seafood. Bon Apetite!

Bright and crunchy, with lime, floral and chalk notes. Crisp, refreshing finish. Drink now.

Unseen, lazy bubbles; salt settling in the corners of the palate; salivating, acidic finish. Through lemony hues, the steely Atlantic influence faintly flickers in this lightly fruited, clean white. From the vineyards surrounding the mouth of the Loire, this wine is bottled sur lie - left unstirred on yeast lees produced during fermentation - producing a Muscadet that's as delicate as stilled Champagne. Matches particularly well with ginger scallops on a bundle of arugula.

Bright, round and exuberant, with lemon peel, floral, sea salt and pink grapefruit notes that bounce around while remaining harmonious. Long, juicy finish leaves you salivating for more. Drink now.

The 2009 Chateau de la Chesnaie Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie smells unusually for its appellation of winter pear, pumpkin, and pineapple, tinged with and hints of sea breeze. Atypically lush in texture for this cuvée - not to mention luscious - it reminds me slightly of a Gruner Veltliner in its alternation of tropical and northerly fruits, its hints of green bean, black pepper, nutmeg, and salt, and its persistent, tactile sense of finishing piquancy, alkalinity, and stoniness. Not one of your ultra-refreshing let alone light renditions of Muscadet, this outstanding value will prove versatile at table for at least the next couple of years, but in circumstances where you might ordinarily elect to open a wine of another genre.
