Louis Métaireau – Domaine du Grand Mouton 2019 Muscadet

This comes from a sub-Appellation of Muscadet from vines that were planted in 1937 to 1941. The nose is very clean and focused with aromas of lime zest, some citrus, and a light creaminess from the lees contact. The palate walks the line well between texture from the lees ageing and a focused flavor set of wet river stones slash chalk and a lime tilted citrus flavor set. D&M Tasting Notes

Louis Métaireau — along with his band of vignerons d’art, as his like-minded group of producers were known — was instrumental in restoring the reputation of the Muscadet appellation in the middle of the 20th century. It was he who first began leaving his wines sur lie (on their fine lees) through the winter.Since taking over for her father, Marie-Luce Métaireau and her husband, Jean-François Guilbaud, have illustrated their deep love of the land by reclaiming the vineyards of the vignerons d’art and piecing them back together to compose one of the most prized sites in all of Muscadet: the Grand Mouton vineyard. The 23-acre vineyard in the heart of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine enjoys perfect exposure between the two famed rivers that lend their names to the AOC, and ranges in vine age from 30 years old to a parcel planted in 1937. The vines are tended organically, and everything is harvested by hand — a rarity in this region,
