Products of the domain : Domaine du Grand Mouton
Domaine Louis Métaireau Grand Mouton extends on the town of Saint Fiacre sur Maine, in the heart of the Muscadet appellation. Located between Sèvre and Maine, the estate has a treasure: its old vines, the oldest of which were planted in 1937! These are deeply rooted in an exceptional terroir composed of gneiss, garnet and amphibolite, which transmits to the wine all its minerality and freshness. Aware of the fragility of their old vines, Jean-François and Marie-Luce Métaireau practice manual grape harvests in order to preserve them in time. Domaine Louis Métaireau Grand Mouton has developed a "reasonable harvest": a viticulture respectful of vineyards and the environment.
