Muscadet des Coteaux de la Loire is a lesser wine appellation in the Loire region of France covering 24 communes (some 189 hectares) near the town of Ancenis. It is a very old appellation having been established in 1936.
The appellation lies east of the city of Nantes on the right (northern) bank of the Loire. The only grape variety permitted in this wine is Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet).
Try the wines of Jacques Guindon who makes racy white wines with lots of citrus and mineral flavours.
