Sometimes bigger is better. And for the holidays you may need wine for more than a few. Not only is this bottle bigger (the size of two regular bottles of wine!) but it's pretty darn delicious too. A single vineyard wine from Muscadet (not to be confused with Muscadine please!) has gobs of intense minerality balanced with richness and bright acidity. The wine truism of "if it grows together, it goes together" is never more accurate than when you talk about the vineyards of Melon in Muscadet planted just off the Atlantic coast of France where Oysters are harvested.
Fresh shucked Oysters... all the oysters
What do I like to drink?
I tend to lean into ‘old world’ styles of wines - but that doesn’t mean only wines from the old world - that have great acidity to them. These wines are naturally food friendly... and I like to do some damage in the kitchen. But overall I’m a very seasonal wine drinker - warm weather has me leaning into fresh rosés and vibrant whites and when the weather turns cool, I love some Nebbiolo and heavier reds to go with the braised and richer foods of the season.
