Opened this with Thanksgiving dinner, that's right, no turkey this year, but it worked beautifully with prawns quickly sauteed in garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, a dash of Cointreau, pinch of sea salt, and a cup of the same wine. Took ten minutes tops, so there was plenty of quality time to enjoy family and friends without watching the hot oven all day. Anyway, old vine Melon de Bourgogne from the Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine terroir is truly one of the underrated wines of the world, and given eight years to pillow talk sur lie contributed sumptuous notes of citrus fruit, cut hay, white flowers, almonds and brioche. The prawns almost jumped off the plate with joy!
