Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu, Loire Valley, France

Muscadet is perfect for anyone who loves the crisp, mineral nature of Chablis or Sancerre and wants to try something different. It’s also the ultimate seafood wine, pairing beautifully with shellfish, particularly oysters and mussels (in fact, it’s traditionally the wine poured into Moules Frites while cooking). We cannot praise Muscadet enough, with its bone-dry palate, bright acidity, and incredible versatility with food. This one from Chateau de la Grange was grown in the Muscadet Cotes de Grandlieu zone, which is further south and warmer than the more famous Muscadet Sevre et-Maine area – leading to riper and more flavorful grapes. Like the best Muscadet wines, it was aged on its lees, adding a little creaminess. Aromas of white flowers, pear, and lime lead into flavors of green apple, lemon, and biscuit on the zippy palate, which offers sea salt minerality and a long, dry finish.
