Why we recommend this wine
We are always on the lookout for wines to drink with oysters and for wines made by family owned winemakers who follow organic practices. This ticks all the boxes.

The wine
Organic practices are followed in vineyard and winery but the wine is not certified. It is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. The vines are grown on sand and gravel which not only give the wine a mineral, slightly salty aspect but also the capacity to age. The 'sur lie' designation is given to Muscadets that have been kept on the lees for more than 4 months and have not been racked or filtered prior to bottling which always takes place on the last day of June following the vintage.
The Le Verger, 2016 is apparently available in the (Sénat) Senate, in Paris so it can’t be that bad.

The wine estate
Made by Pierre Luneau at Domaine du Verger which is situated at Le Landreau in the Western Loire, 20km south east of Nantes. The wines of Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin are on the wine lists of 55 Michelan starred restaurants and are also found in about forty countries. www.domaineluneaupapin.com

Food and wine
Buttery lime wines are ideal with fish and other seafood and it also pairs well with a tuna steak pan-fried in butter and lemon. Refer also to our food and wine pairing guide, click here
