Dom. Herbauges, Muscadet "Prieure de la Fine", Cotes de Grand Lieu, Loire Valley, France, 2020
{sustainable} 100% Melon

Domaine des Herbauges has been run by the Choblet family since 1864, and they have been practicing sustainable agriculture on their estate since 1980. The limestone, gravel, and granite soils in this Grandlieu region produce some of the highest-regarded Muscadets, and this example is no exception. Intensely aromatic and bone dry, it has the wonderful acidity you’d expect, along with literally mouthwatering flavors of pear and white chalk.
Serving Suggestion: Crab, oysters, mussels, snails, or scallops w/ clarified butter. Spring pea salad w/ parmesan & lemon vinaigrette. Baked pasta w/ tomatoes, red pepper flakes, & boursin cheese.
