AOP

Muscadet Sèvre & Maine Goulaine

CRU COMMUNAL GOULAINE

The process of communal crus dates back to the late 1990s in the Muscadet area.

A handful of estates, including the Luneau-Papin estate, agree on the notion of terroir and its richness and diversity around Nantes. The project is launched. Long called Schistes de Goulaine, our cru is today called Goulaine, referring to the Goulaine river flowing into the Loire and common denominator of an area now registered by the INAO. The Goulaine landscape is characterized by a finely carved relief, with mounds converging towards the marshes. Located on the top of the hillsides, the vine plots offer an unobstructed view on the Goulaine marsh, a different one on each season, depending on whether it is covered with water or exposed. The horizon is large and wide, showing remarkable elements of the surroundings and offering a unique feeling of wideness.

VINEYARD CARE THROUGH THE SEASONS

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.

Vines are short cut pruned (single guyot) during winter. Vine density is 6,500 plants per hectare.

Careful sorting is carried out in the vineyard by grape harvesters.

WINEMAKING TECHNIQUES

PRESS

Gula-Ana impresses with its superb density in dry extracts, with a vinous structure for the table and the guard. Alexis Goujard pour Le Guide des meilleurs vins de France 2021

Muscadet Sèvre & Maine Goulaine Gula-Ana 2017: a magnificent maturity of fruit emerges. The solar character of the vintage is tamed brilliantly. It combines a superb saline shine and a nourishing fruit flesh. La Revue des Vins de France Hors Série – Novembre 2020

DISCOVER MUSCADET. Gula-Ana 2017. This Goulaine cru comes from vines dating of 1974 in mass selection, excuse the little! Small marvel of balance where the exuberance is perfectly mastered by an incredible minerality and crazy energy. In the end, a wine chiselled and of a gourmet complexity that you never tire of. To decant absolutely or wait a few more years.
Rachelle Lemoine pour L’OBS – Juin 2021

In more sunny tones, two 2020s are to be discovered: Gula-Ana, of a beautiful build, with stimulating bitterness and notes of ripe white fruits; and Excelsior, of an even greater invigorating depth that promises him a serene future of more than fifteen years.
