Tasting Notes

Muscadet addicts know to search for this unique lieu-dit from famed Nantais producer, Luneau-Papin. Light and dry with lemon zest aromas and fragile white flowers, crystalline mineraled acidity firmly supports this wine's delicate body. Serve with clams, crabs and oysters. This is old vine Melon de Bourgogne grown on a terroir dominated by mica and schist. The wine is fermented in glass-lined underground vats and spends 7 months on its lees.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Melon de Bourgogne


The coolest (temperature-wise) of the Loire Valley appellations, this region is most famous for its bracingly dry, seafood-friendly whites. Made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape (virtually unheard of in the rest of the world), these refreshing wines are idyllic partners for oysters or mussels.


There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
