Frédéric and Henri Nodet live and breathe Muscat: in addition to a couple of classic Muscat de Frontignan, Vin Doux Naturel styles, and a drink-young zesty dry  white; their occasionally sublime Lumière d’Automne speciality is made from very ripe, late-picked grapes (leaving 50g/l residual sugar) and aged in oak. And if you need a break from alcohol, they also make an aromatic tasty Muscat grape juice, as well as good old-fashioned honey on the estate. To find Château de Stony (not that straightforward), follow signs for La Peyrade rather than Frontignan town centre: this peaceful pretty place feels quite isolated, once you go down the dusty track into their yard, even though it's on the edge of a residential area and not that far from the least attractive side of Sète.
