Producer Notes: Sharing and conviviality are the ultimate goal of their work all year long.

Convinced that very good wine should not be reserved for connoisseurs, they want their Muscadet to be enjoyed everywhere, by everyone.

The Louis Metaireau Grand Mouton Domain is located between the Sèvre and Maine rivers, at the heart of the Muscadet Appellation, in the commune of Saint Fiacre sur Maine. The old vines, some of which were planted in 1937, are deeply rooted in an exceptional terroir composed of gneiss, granite, and amphibolite, which give the wine its mineral overtones and freshness. To preserve their older vines for many years to come, they harvest them by hand. They also choose to apply sustainable agricultural techniques or "lutte raisonné", which involves minimizing the use of chemicals wherever possible; this method respects the environment and requires precise and constant monitoring of our vines.
