Winemaking

Muscadet wines are made exclusively from Melon de Bourgogne, also known simply as Muscadet. In 1709, after terribly sharp frosts, the Melon stock was exported from its native Burgundy and established in the milder climate near the Loire and the Atlantic ocean. The vines are 45 years old on average (the youngest are 30 years old, the oldest, 60).

We make the wine using state of the art technologies (pneumatic press, temperature control), whilst respecting our traditions and our terroir. Throughout winter, the Muscadet is kept on its “lies fines”. As the months go by, the complexity of the aromas develops, and the structure gets more complex. Yeast autolysis gradually takes place, releasing the amino-acids and enhancing the palate of flavours reminiscent of brioche and dried fruits.

Customer Reviews

  • A truly wonderful Muscadet

    This is a truly wonderful Muscadet, with beautiful depth of Bramley apple and citrus zest fruit character. It has Muscadet's hallmark crispness, together with a sumptuous creamy roundness - absolutely delicious!
