Traditionally Muscadet would be a weekend (hair of the dog) wine, found in every 'pop up' bars at food markets around the Western city of Nantes and often served in shot-sized glasses. Usually unexpensive and highly acidic, it helps the not-so-young-anymore part goer to make it safely back from a club nd straight to brunch with the In-Laws.
A recent focus on terroir, single vineyards, and Burgundy-inspired techniques, means Muscadet is now served at the best tables around the world, including at French Presidential dinners.
Complemen’terre's La Croix Moriceau is a fantastic emtry to terroir focus Muscadets, yet made in the most natural way possible.
