What a delight to taste the Gadais Muscadet for the first time recently! Lemon zest, lemon cucumber and sea air nose. Taste fresh citrus, sea air, Macintosh apple skin and ripe grapefruit. Finish is an “of the earth” sensation of crushed sea shells and chalk dust. I could drink this all day.
Muscadet: western Loire Valley wine appellation, known for their high-acid, crisp and crunch white wines. The grape here is Melon de Bourgogne. This is a common white wine poured in French bistros because it’s relatively inexpensive, great with fish and fried foods, and not a wine to overwhelm the food or conversations.
