I didn't want to do it, I just wanted to drink a glass (er bottle or 2) of wine tonight and not think about what I am drinking...but dammit I just can't do it.
My mind has been a mess, we wrote our Italy exam today and its all I have had on my mind for the last week...so I decided to go with a nice, light easy drink French wine (take that Italy!).
If you are not familiar with Muscadet, add it to your list of wines to try. The varietal finds it home in the Loire on the Ocean and is a classic pairing with fish, shellfish....anything from the ocean basically!
The best way for me to describe it is the grassyness of a Sauvignon Blanc, the fruit of a Riesling and the spritz of a vinho verde. Dont get me wrong it is not that complex just perfect to sip while the man makes some seafood for dinner (your the best Jayme). I was familiar with this wine as we tasted it in class, that's what prompted me to purchase a bottle.
It would be great chilled on a warm summers day on its own, or with some lighter fare. This wine in particular has great peach, apple and citrus nuances. The slight spritz on the palate is a refreshing jolt to bring the wine to life.
