What do you know about Melon de Bourgogne? If you’re like me you know nothing about it. Make sure to change that.

Light straw color with green tinges here and there. The nose is fantastic if a bit shy at first. Lemon curd and vanilla. Juicy pears and purple flowers. Salt and ocean spray. None of this smacks you in the face. It’s all rather delicate and whispered.

A single vineyard Muscadet from the Loire Valley. Acidic and very mineral driven. Medium everything and fun on the tongue. There the innate creaminess of the wine makes its presence known. The palate follows the nose closely. Everything here is so cultured, refined, and artful. Love at first sip.

Lemon, white pepper, nectarine, licorice and fennel. Did I mention lemon? Salty and razor sharp, with dept and length. Vivid, full of bursting energy. Best Muscadet I have tasted so far.

First time with Muscadet, and was impressed. Zippy, chalky ocean goodness.

Muscadet! Lovely straight sea water mineral lemon goodness. Had with some great oysters Christmas Eve.
