Variety: Melon de Bourgogne
Region: Loire, France
Appellation: Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie
Muscadet is often mistaken as being sweet (think Muscat, Moscato, Moscatel). Think again! Muscadet is bone dry, made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape variety in the Loire Valley. It is light in body, outrageously refreshing, and has a slightly salty finish to it. It is the perfect wine accompaniment to oysters!
