There are few places in the world where Muscat Blanc (also known as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, Muscat Lunel, Yellow Muscat, or Sárgamuskotály, as it is known in Hungary) makes such exciting wine. Harvested relatively early, at the end of August, from three different vineyards of varying soils: the Szarvas and Zafír in Tarcal and Sajgó in Bodrogkeresztúr, with loess bringing tropical fruit and grapey character. Volcanic soil adds acidity and structure—so often lacking in wines made from this grape. It was fermented and aged in the tank (for a short time) to emphasize the primary fruitiness and floral character of the grape. It oozes fresh grape aromas, along with grapefruit, grapefruit zest, elderflower, acacia flower, mango, lemon, and peach. The zesty palate has lively acidity for this grape. It’s a refreshing, medium bodied wine, with the residual sugar (5.8 grams per liter) balanced by the relatively high acidity (6.3 grams per liter), resulting in a smooth yet dry finish. It’s ideal as an aperitif or with salads. It goes especially well with basil, which brings out the wine’s floral character. Other light dishes—particularly chicken and fish dishes—also go especially well with Lunée. Serve well chilled.
