- noun wine from muscat grapes
Sorry, no etymologies found.
And still others add a bit of a third grape, muscadelle, noted for its bouquet and fruit.
Chateau Graville-Lacoste (2007, $18.99), for instance, is 60 percent semillon, 35 percent sauvignon and 5 percent muscadelle.
Then there are the varying styles: pure sauvignon; a blend that leans heavily on semillon with a dash of herbaceous sauvignon gris or floral muscadelle; or a wine that soars free of oak, or is thick with it, or weaves and dances around it.
Château Bonnet 2007 (£6.49, Sainsbury's; 12\% abv), a sauvignon-semillon blend with a dollop of muscadelle, is one decent example.
