VGC Muscadet sur lie 2011 Clos de Moulin du Coing
SORRY OUT OF STOCK
Without a doubt this is the best Muscadet we have tasted.
In the Loire region Muscadet is the local name for Melon de Bourgogne, a white grape variety with Burgundian origin which flourishes in this damp, relatively cold environment. This 2011 Clos de Moulin du Going Muscadet sur lie has a pale lemon tinge and displays appealing aromas of orange blossom, lemon grass, and jasmine tea which twist towards a touch of incense, mixed with an iodine note of sea breeze.
The palate is dominated by a lively tangy acidity, impeccably balanced by a refreshing tropical fruity note mixed with a soft creamy texture. Long savoury and mint finish.
In France, Muscadet is traditionally paired with oysters and mussels. It also works well with lobster bisque, grilled or pan seared scallops, and goat cheese.
