Domaine du Grand Mouton - Louis Métaireau
Muscadet Sèvre et Maine
100% Melon de Bourgogne
Vineyards & Viticulture
Made from the oldest vines originally planted in 1937. This "Cuvee One" proves that Muscadet can age and age beautifully, like great Chablis with a bit of bottle age! Only produced in great vintages.
Gneiss soils, including garnet mica and amphibolite
Harvest & Vinification
Each parcel of the Grand Mouton estate is hand-harvested, vinified separately and aged on its fine lees through the winter making it a true sur lie wine. All wines from the domaine use native yeasts. The wine is bottled without first being racked, which preserves a small amount of carbon dioxide in the wine.
