A Tulip Shaped glass is the best choice for a dry white wine.
It guides the wine to the center of your mouth, avoiding the sides, where acidity is less pleasant.
A smaller bowl also helps to serve smaller quantities, and keep the wine cold.
Remember to hold the glass by the stem!
Muscadet is made on the grape Melon de Bourgogne in the Muscadet wine region, which lies furthest in the French Loire Valley towards the Atlantic Ocean.
Wine grapes have been planted in Muscadet since Roman times, but after a frost that killed most of the grapes in 1709, farmers began to plant Melon de Bourgogne. Today, this is the only permitted grape in this area.
These white wines are unparalleled in terms of style and quality for money.
Muscadet can compete with Chablis at a lower price.
