Chateau de l’Oiselinière wineHere the wines are Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur lie AOP – top flight Muscadets classically matched with the fish and seafood from the nearby Atlantic. They are made from the local Melon de Bourgogne grape(nothing to do with Burgundy wines!).A decade or more back Muscadet tended to be over-acidic, but the modern style is much more mouth-friendly! Wine-testing sessions and guided visits around the chateau and the estate are available.

The Chateau de l’Oiselinière  is about 30km south-east of Nantes in the heart of classic Muscadet country. For more info see Chateau de l’Oiselinière

 

Muscadet is made at the western end of the Loire Valley, near the city of Nantes in the Pays de la Loire region neighboring the Brittany Region. More Muscadet is produced than any other Loire wine. It is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape, often referred to simply as melon. As a rule in France, Appellation d’origine contrôlée wines are named either after their growing region or after their variety (the latter in Alsace only). The name Muscadet is therefore an exception. The name seems to refer to a characteristic of the wine produced by the melon grape variety.(wikipedia)
