This cuvée is made from 3ha of organically tended 35yo vines planted in a soil of gneiss which Michel believes gives the wine its real mineral stamp. Just bring out the oysters!

Note son the producer

Michel Delhommeau farms 25 ha in the commune of Monnières, just south of Nantes, where the soils are predominantly gabbro and gneiss, unlike much of Muscadet which is dominated by granite. In order to express the nuances between each soil type, Michel vinifies them separately using wild yeast and limited amounts of sulphur (45mg/l total) which gives his wines better fruit definition than most Muscadet while keeping sea breeze aromatics from the nearby Atlantic.
