Muscadet Drouet, Loire, 2018 

100% Melon de Bourgogne, unoaked. 

Luscious apple bouquet, crisp and dry on the palate. A great value refreshing crisp white wine. 

At a recent Loire tasting by the Frazier's Team this wine was picked out as a favourite, perfect for drinking in the garden on a summer’s day!

The Muscadet region is located at the westernmost edge of the Loire Valley near the city of Nantes. In the 17th century, Dutch wine merchants laid the foundation for the Muscadet style by encouraging the villagers of Nantes to plant the early ripening Melon de Bourgogne grape to use in the production of their brandewijn-distilled wine with brandy added to it. Following the devastation in 1709 of winter frost to many of the vineyards in the Loire-Atlantique, King Louis XIV ordered that the frost resistant Muscadet grape be given preferential treatment in the replanting of the area. Despite the inference of "Muskiness" in its name, Muscadet is a neutral flavour wine and the Melon de Bourgogne grape has no relation to the Muscat family of grapes.

Nice Muscadet

I usually avoid Muscadet because it can be too sweet. Based on Frazier's review I tried this bottle. Good refreshing balance of flavours and good aftertaste. Will buy again.
