Frédéric Guilbaud Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie 2018
Loire Valley, France
Melon de Bourgogne
Muscadet is such a classically clean, dry, thirst-quenching white wine (and the perfect match with oysters so the story goes).
After some years out of fashion, it's also amazingly good value. And when you see "sur lie" on the label you get an extra bit of complexity and richness from time spent on the lees.
Frédéric Guilbaud is a young vigneron making classy Muscadet with a modern bent on his family's renowned estate, Château de la Bretonnerie. Certified by Terra Vitis, a French federation of environmentally-conscious growers.
