Spring soil preparation has been performed in a traditional manner (earthing down and hoeing) throughout the entire estate since 2009. We treat and take care of the vines with natural preparations (no chemical products) and sow cover crops such as pulses and cereals at the end of summer, with close attention to the needs of each crop. We stimulate soil life with one or two applications of horn dung; (preparation 500) in spring and apply a horn silica (preparation 501) after bloom and before harvest if necessary.

Revue des Vins de France Magazine June 2016
Thanks to winemakers like the Luneau-Papin estate, Muscadet finally expresses the reality of a terroir, an incredible mosaic of dormant flavors, long ignored and mistreated by wine-making chemistry. Melon de Bourgogne and Folle Blanche (the grape varieties of Muscadet and Gros Plant respectively), grown organically and nurtured in the cellar, transport us.
