This year’s 2023 harvest was full of surprises, thanks to changes in growing methods. The wines are now in underground vats. Vinification is underway. We can’t wait for you to discover this new vintage.
How is the Muscadet?
After the long winter work in the vineyard, the Melon de Bourgogne reveals new buds.
And in the cellar … in January
The cellar is quiet during this period. The wines age quietly in the underground vats. We take time to taste them regularly. This year again, there will be some nice surprises to discover.
Harvest 2022 …
This year the sun was generous. The early morning harvest allowed to protect the crop. The grapes were smaller and more concentrated. The wines are very promising. They will soon be available for tasting. You are welcome to visit us.
Feedback on the 2021 harvest￼￼
The crop was a little smaller than the previous years. Still, our Muscadet was at its best and was awarded a Gold Medal at the Vins Val de Loire contest last April. Our Grolleau also received the same distinction, all thanks to our winemaker Jean’s work of vinification.
The Grapes of Nantes￼
At our domain, Muscadet is the star. We also have two other grapes which are typical of the Nantes area. Next to our cellar, we have a plot of Sauvignon Gris a.k.a. Fié Gris, and Grolleau Gris, another grape renowned in Pays de Retz
