After fifteen years of working for wineries in the region, Jérôme Bretaudeau scraped enough tanks and barrels together to begin his own cellar. He has a mind for organic practices and traditional wine making, along with a clever approach to his cuvee selection. Rather than selecting only from ‘lieu dit’ sites, he harvests by age of vine per each soil type. This way he can learn what each vine will bring to his cellar as they come to age. This Muscadet is not like most others. 100% Melon de Bourgogne - Grapes from the Gabbro terroir. This unusual cuvée is vinified and aged in a concrete egg – the only one in Muscadet. This gives the wine better contact with the lees, providing a rich texture packed with vivacious acidity, minerality and lime fruit. Slightly cloudy, with a rounder waxy texture.
