    Winemaker Notes

    This brisk, super-dry white is made in the region of France where the Loire river meets the Atlantic. Its rapier-like acidity, balanced by an attractively modest amount of fruit, is designed to cut through the richness of its classic companion, the oyster.

    Louis Metaireau, Pays Nantais, Loire, France
    Image of winery
    Over the past two decades Jean-François Guilbaud and Marie-Luce Métaireau have taken the "artisanale" beginnings of her father and gone on to write their own chapter in the history of Muscadet. Grand Mouton began as a vision of Louis Métaireau’s troupe of "Les Vignerons d'Art." The name Mouton echos an older French term "mothon" meaing mound, and is in reference to the elevated position and status of the original vineyard purchased by Louis and his group in 1972.

    Jean-François and Marie-Luce began purchasing parcels of this vineyard in 1988 with the goal of bringing the cherished vineyards of their two families together under one house. Their estates are located in the heart of the Nantes vineyard region and they have 30 hectares of vines situated on three boroughs between Sèvre et Maine, exclusively planted with the grape variety Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet). Vines planted as far back as 1937 root into the rocky terroir composed of gneiss, mica, garnet and amphibolite –a recipe of stones between the Sèvre and Maine rivers known as the most highly regarded of the Muscadet appellations. While we carve our turkeys, hang our stockings and dye our eggs, these wines ‘faire ses pâcques’ (literally ‘make their Easter’), resting 'sur lie' to develop richness and depth, and bottled by gravity with no filtration. Jean-François and Marie-Luce are truly les Vignerons d'Art.

    Melon de Bourgogne

    View all wine

    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 to the west of the city of Nantes and part of the larger Muscadet region.

    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 continually outlawed from Burgundy, just like Gamay, at various times during the 16th & 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 Secrets

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