Muscadet is a wine appellation in the western part of the Loire Valley of France near the city of Nantes. It is an extensive appellation producing minerally white wines from the Melon de Bourgogne grape which is also known as Muscadet.
There are three sub-appellations within the broader Muscadet region. These are Muscadet de Sevre et Maine where the wines of Pierre Luneau-Papin are produced. This sub-appellation is very large compared to the other two, but the best wines are generally found within these boundaries. The second is Muscadet Cotes de Grand Lieu which lies south-east of Nantes. The third is Muscadet - Coteaux de la Loire which lies east of Nantes where Pierre Luneau-Papin also maintains a vineyard.
