Natalie's Score: 87/100

One of the most refreshing white wines around is Muscadet. This shows subtle aromas of salty mineral, grapefruit, peach, floral and notes of lees. It is dry and crisp with a medium body on the palate, and its soft citrus fruit flavours lead to a finish that is medium-long, zesty, and minerally. An exuberant wine with fresh, clean notes of lime, lemongrass and herbal refreshment. Perfect as an aperitif or food companion.

Muscadet Sèvre & Maine food pairings: mussels, clams steamed in wine and fresh tarragon, light fish, sashimi.

Muscadet remains cracking value for lovers of crisp white wine, and this one is brilliant with breezy freshness and a very dry briny twist that just yells “SEASIDE!”

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
