If you like raw oysters but never had the opportunity to try with Muscadet - you should! You know, in Sommelier school, along with Sauternes & Foie Gras, this is one of the basic "classic pairings" we learn. And it's true! L'Aubiniere 2007 is one of those Muscadets that is text-book perfect for the job. Crispy, slightly spicy, tingling and full of the oceanic presence we find in some wines grown with the sea influence. I'll say it again "perfect" with raw oysters, but also crabs, scallops, Blanquette de Veau, prawn cocktail, egg dishes such as Souffle, fishcakes, greens salad and vinegar dressing (very hard to pair!), Taramasalata, and any white fish dishes with a white wine sauce.
