Muscat

Muscat

Muscat is often said to be the only wine that really tastes of grapes. There are many different clones, but Muscat à Petit Grains and Muscat D'Alexandrie tend to be the most common, the former being of higher quality and the latter used more frequently to make sweet wines. It is commonly grown in France, but is also used to make Moscato d’Asti in Italy, and is known as Moscatel in Spain and Portugal. Muscat has a distinctive grapey aroma, with floral notes, orange and spice. Both dry and sweet expressions of Muscat can be delicious but it has been sweet wines like Muscat de Beaumes de Venise and Saint-Jean-de-Minervois which have really put it on the map.
