Mission Codename Bon Chance
Muscadet is a French white wine that hails from the western end of the Loire Valley, near the city of Nantes in the Pays de la Loire region. This varietal is characterized typically as light, crisp and refreshing. Indeed, today’s 2010 Muscadet Sevre et Maine from Louis Metaireau, embodies these qualities. And more.
Aged Sur Lie, by the producer that introduced sur lie aging, this wine is delicious and even somewhat complex. When one reads about Muscadet, it can often be described as ‘simple’. This wine is far from simple. In fact, it has so much going on.
Having earned a well-deserved 90 point score from Wine Spectator Magazine, we give this very limited-availability wine our highest recommendation.
Pair this very food-friendly wine with seared scallops, bay oysters or crab salad.
