Muscadet used to have a terrible reputation in the seventies. Mainly because a lot of it that was shipped over here was overly acidic and more like battery acid than white wine. Almost half a century later, Muscadet has returned to its roots and is making stunning, fresh, racy whites that are THE perfect accompaniemnt to all kinds of seafood and shellfish. This is a great example. Full on zingy apple and lemon flavours pair with a flinty edge and great tanginess on the finish. That tangyness, or acidity, makes it the perfect foil for food. This, and a bowl of freshly cooked mussels = heaven.
