Village of le Landreau, bedrock of schists. Vines planted in 1974.
Clos du Milieu is the cadastral name of this vineyard plot, which is a monopole belonging exclusively to Domaine Luneau-Papin.
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.
Grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press, strength and length of pressing is adapted to each vintage.
Spontaneous fermentation using only natural yeasts. Fermentation and maturation on lees in underground glass lined vats for seven months, without racking until bottling in spring time 2020.
Serve at 12˚C
Excellent as an aperitif with shellfish, fish in a sea salt crust, roasted fillet of sea bream, Asian
cuisine, or fresh cheeses.
Thanks to winemakers of the caliber of Pierre-Marie & Marie Luneau, Muscadet should regain the place that it should never have lost in top restaurants. Melon de Bourgogne at the best of its form with its citrus notes, saline finish, and intense freshness of flavor that preps the palate for shellfish, and seafood, without forgetting fresh goat’s cheese.
Very good balance for this excellent Muscadet whose minerality is accompanied by aromas of lemons and limes and a more subtle note of white stone fruits. We finish with saline and iodized notes. With turbot, sole, or a seafood platter.
