Description:
The emblem of La Bourdinière has the fleur-de-lys of French royalty and the ermine of the Duchy of Brittany. Indeed, Nantes, Muscadet’s capital, has influences from the Loire Valley, Brittany and the Atlantic. Made from old-vine Melon grapes, grown on Breton granite, and aged extensively on lees, this gastronomic Muscadet goes beautifully with seafood cuisine.
