Here's a terrific alternative to Chablis (unoaked Chardonnay from Burgundy) for your shellfish: dry, crisp and refreshing. Perfect companion to oysters, mussels and clams. Aromas of lime and lemon. This is a terrific wine at a bargain price for the quality. You can also enjoy it as an aperitif.

Muscadet food pairings: mussels, oysters, chilled with poached fish in light sauce, other shellfish and seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Generous minerality on the nose and palate supported by mouthwatering flavours of lemon peel and grilled lime. Light bodied with a generous length. Perfect with oysters. Enjoy through 2015. Tasted Oct 2014.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh citrus lime and white tree fruit on nose and palate. Mouth-watering acidity. Great with shellfish and salads.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nice fairly aromatic wine, with hints of lemon and cracked shells on the beach.I also got the honeysuckle fragrance.Quite rich mouthfeel,with a fresh finish.Richer than expected;maybe that particular batch? Definitely seafood companion,be it fresh oysters,or chowder.
Kimberly Inksater rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is an aromatic white with sweet white floral on the nose but on the palate it's refreshingly acidic! With its citrus-forward flavours this dry white would pair well with green salad, ceviche, or chevre.
Alice Kubicek rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bright lemon-green clarity with intense aromas of honeysuckle, melon, red apples and a hint of vanilla. Refreshing zesty acidity speaks of minerality with fruits of gooseberries, pears and apples. Long soft finish with apple.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A nice dry white with lemon, lemon zest, and minerailty. Refreshing and mouthwatering with a slight creamy, dairy characteristic from being vinified sur lie. With be great with one of my favorite dishes from back home in newfoundland, cod au gratin.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Slightly floral aromas, including lavender, also some clean citrus notes as well. Refreshing, nice acidity, and also a bit of creaminess. Medium finish. This would be a great wine to have with summer seafood, or perhaps oysters.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lemon lemon lemon.
Great muscadet that will pair perfectly with oysters. Would also be great with coquille saint-jacques.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale straw with aromas of crisp yellow apple and white flowers, but with a distinctive creamy aspect as well. The taste follows the aromas, including the creamy aspect The acidity is high, balancing the creaminess quite nicely.
Monique Ippolito - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Subtle aromas but bold flavours! Peach, apricot, yellow delicious apple, lemon and definitely some diary presence (hence the sur lie). Medium plus acidity, medium body, and medium-short tart lemon apple finish.
Alex & Priya Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Alex: Zesty nose with lemon rind, bakers yeast, lime and seashell with a touch of white flowers. Saline palate, nice creamy leesiness, mouthwatering acidity, lime and lemon infused creamy, salty finish. 87pts
Priya: As winemaker Pierre Charon said, 2013 was not a very 'expressive' year and so I'm not surprised that there wasn't much to smell since I don't have the developed nose of Alex. I did taste the tart, lemon/lime flavour however! 84pts
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 74/100 with the following review:

Clear golden color.
Delicate bubble with aromas of lemon, lime and melon.

The palate is crisp, light-bodied and short.

Try it with mussels or take it like aperitif.

Serve it at 8-10 degrees.

Ready to drink.
