One vineyard, several Muscadets

Situated in the western Loire River Valley, the Nantes wine country is famous for its incomparable Muscadet white wine, made from a single varietal, Melon de Bourgogne.

Not far from the Atlantic Ocean, the Nantes wine region covers several hundred hectares. The two rivers crossing the appellation, the Petite Maine and the Sèvre Nantaise, lent it its name: Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine.

The grapes grown here ripen at varying rhythms, depending on the soil type, the orientation and slope of the plots, and their distance from the coast or rivers. Thus are born the Muscadets, each offering its singular gustatory qualities. The renowned pairing of Muscadet with seafood is therefore all too simplistic. For, according to their particular terroirs, certain wines are the perfect accompaniment to white meats and cheeses, and some have an excellent ageing capacity.
