This is a simple Muscadet, so does not have the “sur lies” specification, meaning it does not rest “on lees” – on the spent yeast, but may be filtered. It’s therefore a clean neutral wine. It’s beautifully crisp, very mineral, and has a lovely flor sherry character (which, incidentally comes from the yeast). It’s absolutely perfect for oysters. But don’t stop there – it’s a food wine, and will go with almost anything, particularly if its seafood or herb based. A great dinner party wine for connoisseurs if you can’t afford Champagne. Careful though – you’ll throw it back like lemonade.
