THE VINEYARD

This organic Muscadet is made by Pierre Luneau at Domaine du Verger situated at Le Landreau in the Western Loire, 20km south east of Nantes and is made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. The vines are grown on sand and gravel which not only give the wine a mineral, slightly salty aspect but also the capacity to age. The ‘sur lie’ designation is given to Muscadets that have been kept on the lees for more than 4 months and have not been racked or filtered prior to bottling which always takes place on the last day of June following the vintage.
