Muscadet Wine - Loire White
Muscadet is not a wine you will see that often on Your Sommelier, not that we don’t like a nice and fresh glass of this Loire white but mainly because of its poor reputation. Well forget everything you’ve heard about it because Muscadet is back! Or as the Decanter magazine recently wrote: “Think you know Muscadet? Think again!”
The region has been working hard in the past years to dramatically improve the quality of the wines and it’s now paying off with the creation of several local Cru and the renewed popularity of this forgotten wine. We have obviously tasted many of them before selecting the Château de la Ragotière, all their wines stood out as the best ones in their categories. The classic Muscadet, the Vieilles Vignes or the Vallet Cru: we loved them all and, for once, the choice wasn’t that hard for us!
On top of their Muscadet, the Couillaud family produces two outstanding entry-level whites that brilliantly complete the range: a slightly oaked Chardonnay and a delicious Sauvignon. Everything in there to love the wines from the organic vineyard of Château de la Ragotière and we can only recommend you to get some now as they should go very quickly!
