This crisp, lemony white from France’s Loire
Valley is grown close to the Atlantic and is
one of the world’s greatest wines for seafood.
What You Need To Know
Muscadet is an area on the western
shoals of France, near where the Loire River empties into the
Atlantic. Its best subregion lies between the Sèvre and Maine
tributaries, where gravelly soils produce wines of the most nuance
and depth with a sharp, briny edge. The region’s signature grape,
Melon de Bourgogne, tends to lack character when grown in other
places, but in this cool maritime climate it produces a bright, flinty
wine that’s sheer perfection when paired with seafood.
Lemon, seashells and rocks.
Racy flavors of citrus
and sea spray.
Serve well chilled as an aperitif
or with a first course.
Raw oysters, steamed or
grilled seafood and light fish
with a squeeze of lemon.
