Notes from the Winemaker:

"I am a 37 year old winegrower, born in Gorges in a Muscadet vineyard. After completing my HND in winegrowing & oenology in Montreuil-Bellay, and after several experiences on different domains I wanted to come back to my roots, impatient to put everything that I had learned into practice and stand, on my own two feet in a vineyard that reflects my convictions.

I took over Michel Bregeon’s 8.5 hectare domaine in 2011. Michel is one of the pioneers of high quality Muscadet, spearheading the crus of the Nantes vineyard region. He is someone who had always thought that this wine, issued from the Melon de Bourgogne variety, which had for so long been labelled as ‘plonk’, deserved much, much more. He made deep and subtle wines, wines for ageing capable of competing with the best. In this way, Michel accompanied me, passing on his knowledge and skills of the characteristics of his soils."
