The place to disembark towards the sweeties
Muscat has two guises, a dry, but perfumed wine for uncomplicated drinking, and the basis of many sweet and fortified wines, including, the sparkling Moscato. As a dry white it is relatively simple, but has a surprising difference between its fragrant nose and crisp taste. Which makes it a summery delight, great for chilling down and enjoying in the garden or on the terrace. You will mostly find this style in the South of France under the label Muscat Sec. It is here that you also find some of the sweeties. Muscat de Beaumes de Venise is a naturally sweet wine, so quite light and perfumed, perfect for cake, and in the bath… Whereas the fortified versions are much darker and excellent chocolate and cheese companions.
