I’ve tasted my way from Nantes to Pouilly-sur-Loire over the course of several visits to the region. I’m a big fan of Muscadet in the summer; for me it’s the perfect wine to wash down moules mariniere. This wine comes from the area around Nantes.
Tasting notes: Pale straw yellow with green reflections. Floral and fruity nose. Light-bodied with some minerality. A little nettle, this sensation comes from the lees aging, which gives the wine some subtle effervescence. Fresh, crisp acidity. Well balanced. A little length on the finish. Some intensity. Aged sur lie which makes it more supple.
