Jeremie and his wife Claire are third generation winemakers responsible for around 24 hectares of vines (averaging 40 years old) in the Muscadet Sevre et Maine appelation to the SE of Nantes. Found a mere 50km away from the Atalantic the true joy in their wines, and the reason I have taken 4 cuvees from the same one single grape (Melon de Bourgogne), is the variety of soils on which it grows and varying time it spends aging on its lees. Each cuvee is a parcelaire selection to truly express the minerality, finesse and typicity of their soils from; sandy loam, gabbros, clay silicious, gneiss and biotite granite with lees aging ranging from 6 to 24 months. Having travelled the world over, Jeremie and Claire retunred inspired by cleaner low intervetnion farming and in 2014 started the conversion to Organic viticulture.

Tasting note: Very bright; crisp; fresh green yet still creamy; with sweet green apple; fine pear and confit lime. The pallet is clean; grassy and zingy and high tinging acidity; lime zest and a touch salty. Bright; clean and fresh.
Winemaking Detail: Hand-harvested from a variety of planted on metamorphic rocks. The grapes are lightly pressed and then allowed to settle, followed by fermentation. Fermentation and aging in traditional underground cement tanks, lined with tiles under controlled temperature. The wine is then racked on fine lees with battonage, before being aged on lees for 6 months.
