Oysterman 2019 Muscadet, Loire Valley
I'd be hard pressed to think of a more refreshing white than the Melon de Bourgogne from Muscadet in the Loire Valley. Fierce acidity, tons of citrus rind and minerals with an oceanic like brininess that makes the mouth water. We are seeing more and more winemakers aging their Muscadet, which adds a little texture and lets some of the assertive acidity fold into the wine which gives us a little more balance. I love just gulping this wine but it is so food friendly, think salads, grilled veggies, pesto, goat cheese, pouch pounding and poolside relaxing!
