Winemaker Notes

Light, easy to drink, thirst-quenching, Muscadet Sèvre et Maine (Sèvre and Maine being the two rivers crossing the Muscadet region) is known as "healthy wine" due to its lack of residual sugar (close to zero) and its moderate alcohol content of 12%.

It is the perfect refreshing wine with spicy food. Its iodine aroma brought by the ocean breeze is an ideal complement to Japanese cuisine.

Sauvion, Pays Nantais, Loire, France
2005 Sevre Et Maine Muscadet
One of the best-known Muscadet producers, Sauvion has long been established in the Loire Valley. Jean-Ernest (often referred to as the "Wizard of the Loire") and Yves Sauvion have carefully put together a range of delicious and diversified wines that have set the tone for much of the Loire Valley.

Château du Cléray-Sauvion, located in the heart of the Nantes region, is one of the oldest estates of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine region and serves as the home to the Sauvion family. It is also one of the few Muscadet-producing Châteaux.

Melon de Bourgogne

View all wine

Made famous in Muscadet, a gently rolling, Atlantic-dominated countryside on the eastern edge of the Loire, Melon de Bourgogne is actually the most planted grape variety in the Loire Valley. But the best of it comes from Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, a subzone to the west of the city of Nantes and part of the larger Muscadet region.

The name might suggest this grape is from Burgundy—and indeed its origins are Burgundian. But while history shows it is the progeny of Pinot and Gouais Blanc, it was continually outlawed from Burgundy, just like Gamay, at various times during the 16th & 17th centuries.

In the Glass

Muscadet wine is full of fresh acidity and has smoky and saline aromas with some floral character; flavors are of green pear, lemon and honeysuckle. Since the mid 1980s, winemakers have been successfully experimenting with various winemaking techniques including barrel fermentation, lees stirring and pre-fermentation skin contact to make a more complex wine.

Perfect Pairings

Try Muscadet with any light and flaky fish, oysters, roasted chicken, root vegetables and fondue.

Sommelier Secrets

The wine itself is called Muscadet, and while suggestive of “muscat,” the wine is not related to any muscat variety.
