2018 Pulpe Fiction Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine Lie - Loire Valley, France
Pulpe Fiction, a collaboration between legendary Loire producers Domaine Jousset and Nicolas Reau, is a light to medium bodied, uber-natural Melon de Bourgogne, aka Muscadet. Hand-harvested and vinified without any additives, it offers restrained notes of orchard fruit and zesty green apple with crisp acidity. Extended time on the lees adds subtlety, complexity and a touch of sparkle to the wine. This is the classic pairing with oysters on the half shell but also goes well with grilled freshwater fish sautéed in beurre blanc with a side of steamed artichoke.
