PAUL BUISSE

Muscadet

“For me, there's nothing that says French summertime like Muscadet. You can almost taste the Atlantic in each citrusy, slightly saline sip”

Wine Information

About the wine

Muscadet is a crisp, dry wine made in the Muscadet appellation. It must be made from Melon de Bourgogne, a grape variety that was once, rather confusingly, also known as Muscadet. This one is rested on its lees for 6 months to add texture and an almost nutty character. Try it with crab.

 

About the producer

Paul Buisse is a century-old family-run producer based in the cellars beneath the castle town of Montrichard. The winemaking team created this wine in Amboise, a small market town that was once home to the French royal court and Leonardo de Vinci.

 

About the region

As Muscadet is on the west coast of France, its wines are heavily influenced by cooling, salty breezes that indulge the grapes. This results in wines that are famous for their freshness and zippy style.
