They talk about us in Irelande: Drink: Svelte Muscadet – made for summer
Muscadet is one of the Loire River Valley’s driest and most non-fruity wine styles. It is not to be confused with its alter ego, Muscat. It is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape grown near fishing port city of Nantes, south of Brittany.
