Alain Treille Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2015 – $10.99
Muscadet gets no respect. An undervalued dry white, it’s usually mistaken for the sweet Muscat due to the similarity of the name. It could not be more different. Hailing from the mouth of the Loire River, Muscadet is a delightful, sprightly aperitif. A classic match with oysters, it also ages quite well due to its vibrant acidity. Dry and minerally, this Muscadet shows white flower and pear aromas along with a subtle salinity. It will stimulate the palate, preparing it for the meal to come. At one time, our best selling white was a Muscadet. Let’s see what you think about this one.
