The Muscadet wines have always been a natural accompaniment for oysters and other shellfish. It is harvested at maturity and is one of the few wines to have such a remarkable natural “dripping” and such a fruity freshness.
The vineyard is located at the western end of the Loire vineyard and is limited by Brittany to the north, the hills of Mauges and the Vendée in the east and south-east, the Breton Marsh in the south-west and the Atlantic coast in the west.
The wines are generally pale with green flecks. The aromas of the Muscadet are abundant in white flowers and fruit.
When they are aged on lees, the wines are supple with freshness and perlant (slight effervescence).
