    Winemaker Notes

    A clean and elegant wine, demonstrating a smokiness and earthiness matched with a crystalline sense of saline minerality.

    It’s been nearly twenty years since we first began working with Gerard and Daniel Vinet at the well-known estate of Quilla in the village of La Haie-Fouassiere. A little known fact is that this village is the origin of the famous wines of Muscadet. The village is located within the region known as Sevre et Maine, an area that lies between the two tributaries that flow from the south to the Loire. Of the three zones within the appellation of Muscadet, Sevre et Maine is the best ripening area for the Muscadet grape type (which is also known as Melon de Bourgogne). The Vinet family owns about 60 acres. The vineyards are tended by Daniel and vinification is controlled by Gérard, his younger brother. With the Atlantic influence, the harvest generally begins early September. The yields are not excessive and all the fruit is harvested by hand. The real key to the wines from Domaine de la Quilla is that the Vinet’s keep the wines sur lie for eight months before bottling at the end of May, unlike most in this appellation who bottle in March. The Vinet family work proudly to produce this impeccably dry and fragrant wine. Enjoy!

    The Pays Nantais, Loire’s only region abutting the Atlantic coast, is solely focused on the Melon de Bourgogne grape in its handful of subzones: Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine, Muscadet-Coteaux de la Loire and Muscadet-Côtes de Grandlieu. Muscadet wines are dry, crisp, seaside whites made from Melon de Bourgogne and are ideal for the local seafood-focused cuisine. (They are not related to Muscat.) There is a new shift in the region to make these wines with extended lees contact, creating fleshy and more aromatic versions.

    Made famous in Muscadet, a gently rolling, Atlantic-dominated countryside on the eastern edge of the Loire, Melon de Bourgogne is actually the most planted grape variety in the Loire Valley. But the best comes from Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, a subzone of Pays Nantais. Somm Secret—The wine called Muscadet may sound suggestive of “muscat,” but Melon de Bourgogne is not related. Its name also suggests origins in Burgundy, which it has, but was continuously outlawed there, like Gamay, during the 16th and 17th centuries.
