Winemaker Notes

When you drink a Brégeon Muscadet, you know you are drinking Muscadet. Bone dry, flinty, mouthwatering acidity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Michel Brégeon’s Muscadets are set apart by the soil in Gorges, where his vineyards include gabbro, volcanic rock that formed when the ground was ocean floor. Brégeon farms 19.2 acres, the vines for this cuvée averaging 40 years old; he ferments it without added yeast and ages it in underground glass-lined vats, often for many years before bottling. This young wine is super-rich, with succulent flavors of Asian pear, touches of matsutake mushroom and lots of salt air. It’s bright and chiseled, with distinctive minerality that needs plenty of oxygen to reveal itself completely—suggesting that Brégeon’s decision to hold his wines back in tank is a worthwhile plan to follow in bottle as well. Otherwise, decant a bottle now, and start shucking oysters.

Pays Nantais Wine

Loire, France

View all products

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 of it comes from Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, a subzone west of the city of Nantes, which is part of the larger Pays Nantais.

The name might suggest this grape is from Burgundy—and indeed its origins are Burgundian. But while history shows it is the progeny of Pinot and Gouais blanc, it was continuously outlawed from Burgundy, just like Gamay, at various times during the 16th and 17th centuries.

In the Glass

Muscadet wine is full of fresh acidity and has smoky and saline aromas with some floral character; flavors are of green pear, lemon and honeysuckle. Since the mid 1980s, winemakers have been successfully experimenting with various winemaking techniques including barrel fermentation, lees stirring and pre-fermentation skin contact to make a more complex wine.

Perfect Pairings

Try Muscadet with any light and flaky fish, oysters, roasted chicken, root vegetables and fondue.

Sommelier Secret

The wine itself is called Muscadet, and while suggestive of “muscat,” the wine is not related to any Muscat variety.
