Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Muscadet is built for shellfish. It opens with a mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with note of white pepper and lime. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. I would pair this good value Muscadet with oysters. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: The wine has beautiful aromas of pears and melons and is very delicate and refined on the palate. It has lovely mineral notes and a long crisp finish. Le Charmel Muscadet makes a wonderful aperitif but is superb with all shellfish and other fish dishes as well as goat cheeses.
