2018 Chéreau Carre Château l'Oiselinière de la Ramée Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie - Loire Valley, France (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (44)|
Muscadet is the name of the grape and ’Sur Lie' refers to the extended fermentation on the lees - essentially the decomposing yeast cells once they’ve done the good Lord’s work and turned sugar into a!cohol. The result is a fresh, bone-dry wine with subtle fruit flavors, alittle brininess or ‘umami’ and hint of ‘petillance’. Not to be confused with Muscat, Muscadet is THE classic pairing for oysters but goes well with most seafood and shellfish.
