Made with 100% Melon de Bourgogne grapes from fines more than 45 years old, this fruity and smooth wine is excellent an aperitif, with shellfish, ocean and river fish, fresh cheese (soft goats' cheese) and those with a rind such as Emmental and Beaufort.
"The Luneau-Papin 2009 Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie Clos des Alees is uncommonly lush not to mention luscious for its genre, with scents of honeydew melon, mint, and licorice setting the tone for the entire vinous performance. Fresh lime and salt enliven the palate while hints of nut oils and coffee add further richness. Yet for all of that richness, this wonderful value remains juicily, consummately refreshing as well as (at only 12% alcohol) light. Plan to relish it over the next 2-3 years. "
