Jean-Francois Baron Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2022 HALF Bottle (37.5cl)


White,  Loire  Valley, France

In stock


A benchmark style of Muscadet from Jean-Francois and Claudine Baron in the Loire Valley. This is dry, crisp, clean, light and extremely refreshing. It has high natural acidity, so pair it with creamy pasta, cheesy dish or hearty bean soup for food and wine heaven!

TASTING NOTE: A light yellow colour with hints of green On the nose: this wine is fresh and, while not expressive at the start, shows plenty of lime, lemon, granny smith apples and thyme when you smell the glass for a second time. On the palate: it is bone dry, crisp, light and high in acidity but as with many great Muscadets, there is surprising depth and length of flavour, and is not to be underestimated! Unoaked as is typical, and slips down very easily indeed! 12% alcohol by volume.

FOOD PAIRING, STORING AND SERVICE: This is relatively light in body with high natural acidity, and very dry. Typical matches include Atlantic oysters given the proximity of the Atlantic coast to the vineyards of Muscadet, or other seafood dishes, such as oysters, scallops or salmon and green beans. You could also try it with goat’s cheese in a similar manner to Sancerre’s Crottin de Chavignol. Drink now or till Winter 2024.
