Staff Pick Notes

The Gadais family selects the grapes for this wine from the best old vines in their property. This Muscadet is produced only during the best years in order to create a very well balanced wine. This wine is elegant with citrus flavors such grapefruit and lime, orchard fruit notes such as pear and a bright acidity and minerality. Because it's aged "sur lie", meaning on its dead yeast, some residual skin and seeds , you can notice a certain richness, a silky texture and a gentle salinity. This wine pairs perfectly with oysters or scallops but I would suggest it also with some goat cheese on crackers as aperitif. Try it!



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.
