This Muscadet comes from the heart of the Sèvre st Maine district, known for its Muscadets. There are a couple of appellations in Muscadet, the best of which is considered to be Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine, and the best wines from that appellation are aged sur-lie, or on the lees, the musty mix of yeasts and other post-fermentation solids. This aging provides flavor complexity that can be missing in other bottles.The wine is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape and fermented “sur lie” which gives the wine a slight sparkling effect. Muscadet is perfect with seafood, especially fresh oysters!
