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!

Château de l’Oiselinière wine


Muscadet is made at the western end of the Loire Valley, near the city of Nantes in the Pays de la Loire region neighboring Brittany. 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)

The Chateau de l’Oiselinière  is about 30km south-east of Nantes in the heart of classic Muscadet country. Every summer there is a fantastic arts trail in Nantes which is well worth a visit for the whole family – Le Voyage á Nantes as well as some great music festivals:-
