Muscadet is very much a wine region whose climate, history, and sustenance are married to the sea. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the wines of Muscadet, and especially those of Sèvre-et-Maine, are fashioned with all of the fruits and creatures of the sea in mind. In France, oysters are the traditional, tried-and-true accompaniment to Muscadet. In nearby Nantes as well as in Paris, the bistros and fish restaurants all attest to Muscadet's preeminence. Consequently, raw oysters and the 2006 Château de la Chesnaie are a perfect combination, but for those wary of consuming raw crustaceans (and one is justified in being so leery), we suggest Oysters Florentine, Oyster Stew, or almost any style of sautéed oysters. Crab, mussels, prawns, scallops, and shrimp offer equally fine pairings with this wine. Specifically, Shrimp Cocktail, Shrimp Scampi, and Scallops en Brochette make for tasty accompaniments. Sole, flounder, and most light, white fish will pay homage to the 2006 Château de la Chesnaie as well. Bon Appétit!
