The designation Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine is the most prestigious and the most productive among the appellations that cultivate the Melon de Bourgogne. This appellation, which covers the area south-east of Nantes, takes its name from two rivers, the Sèvre Nantaise and Maine that bathe the territory called Vignoble Nantais whose soil is composed mostly of granite and shale, like the one in around Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine, and clay like that of Vallet.
Three cellars under the command of Madame Véronique Günther-Chereau, noble origins and make a confident and determined. Very different between them the Domaines for different types of terroir.
La Gravelle located Gorges guarantees freshest wines and minerals, cuvée that can also be appreciated after ten years of production, here the soil is composed of volcanic rocks covered by a thick layer of clay.
The Chateau du Coing, nestled in the foothills of the Armorican Massif, facing south, overlooking the Ocean, maintains a more classic style and round thanks to soils rich in shale conglomerate that give the wine its characteristic liveliness and elegance.
The Cormeraie is more rustic and here are produced wines with a strong personality and structure, according to the tradition of the great Muscadet with huge aging potential.
Since its creation, the production philosophy has not changed. Nature has always been the wine guide towards a rational culture and more and more to a biological approach.
