Muscadet: Made From Melon de Bourgogne Grapes
Like many wines, Muscadet has its origins in France. The Melon de Bourgogne grapes used in the creation of this white wine grow well in the Loire Valley, and they produce a wine imbued with flavors like green apple and lemon.
What’s in a Name?
Although the Muscadet name may look similar, it isn’t Moscato or Muscat wine. It stands on its own as being unusual because it’s almost salty and only slightly fruity. In fact, Muscadet has been compared in some ways to lager, as it’s fermented with yeast.
Vegetarians may find that Muscadet wine fits well with their dietary leanings. Muscadet is an excellent option for meals that feature vegetables like onions, garlic, turnips, artichokes and potatoes. If you love to cook, you can also add Muscadet to sauces for more complex flavors.
