Light Body, Mineral Driven
Lemon-Lime, Green Apple, Chamomile
Muscadet wines are well-known for being lean, mean, mineral machines, and Jo Landron’s cuvées follow suit. The nose is a little reticent at first, giving mostly lemon verbena and talc. The palate is lively and bright, with lemon-lime, green apple, and wildflower notes. At every point on the palate, acidity is the name of the game, and the wine’s long, wet-stone mineral finish keeps going and going. Oysters are the classic pairing with Muscadet, but any shellfish dish will be an excellent mate.
