Best Muscadet Wine

Muscadet is a white French wine. It is made at the western end of the Loire Valley, near the city of Nantes in the Pays de la Loire region neighboring the Brittany Region. More Muscadet is produced than any other Loire wine.

It is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape, often referred to simply as melon. The name seems to refer to a characteristic of the wine produced by the melon grape varietal : vin qui a un goût musqué - 'wine with a musk-like taste'.

Muscadet wines are often light bodied and almost always dry with very little, if any residual sugar. Left over carbon dioxide from the bottling process can leave the wines with a slight "prickly" sensation.

My reviews of these Muscadet white wines are updated weekly. These Muscadet white wines offer great taste at a good price.

Muscadet

Muscadet that have been aged sur lie can have very subtle "yeasty" aromas. The acidity keeps the wines light and refreshing. Some examples can have a slight "saltiness" about them.

Muscadet has been described by at least one wine critic as the "perfect oyster wine". The classic food and wine pairings in the Pays Nantais region is of Muscadet with the local seafood-particularly oysters. Other seafood dishes that Muscadet pair well includes lobster, shrimp and mullet.

The moderate alcohol levels of Muscadet (always under 12%) allows them to complement many types of dishes without overwhelming them. The light, crisp acidity can "cut through" (meaning it stands out against) rich, creamy dishes which can be a refreshing change of pace for the palate.
