Muscat is a typically Mediterranean grape variety, four types of muscat are cultivated in France, here it is the white muscat with small grains. It's the oldest one. Its origin is Greek, it was established with the first Phocaean colonies settled in Marseille.
A Mediterranean grape variety, well adapted to the climate
Its bunches are small, but contrary to what its name may suggest, the grapes are of medium size. When its yield is limited, white muscatel with small grains has a high sugar potential with a good balance of acidity and an intense, powerful and delicate taste.
An aromatic explosion
A well vinified muscatel brings a musky and wild smell. It is both a slightly animal expression, of rosewood and lychee with fruity notes of orange, exotic and floral fruits (jasmine, lemongrass, verbena).
In short, an aromatic explosion!
