Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur lie


Simple as Guyot pruning with a stick of 9 to 10 buds. Trellised plot with three wires. Spring decavaillonage on the whole vineyard (see the photos of this operation on the site).

Shoeing with discs then 2 passages of Boisselet type blade. In our approach to organic cultivation, no synthetic product is used in our vines as well as in the cellar.


A pale yellow color, limpid, shiny and revealing a slight pearl, engages the tasting. The very fresh and fruity scent, combining aromas of pineapple, peach, lemon with a few of stone fruit. Balanced and endowed with a nice bitterness, the mouth is thirst-quenching on the length.


The harvest, destemmed, is directly vatted to begin its maceration.


The maturity of the grape depends on the product to be made. For a white wine, the sugar level is a fundamental criterion. For a dry white wine, maturity is sought and the fruit is harvested a little before (generally eight days) the maturity of the sugars. At this point, the ratio of sugar to acid is optimal. Manual harvest, carried to the hood into the lifting bucket which has an endless screw, the grapes are dumped without a pump onto the belt conveyor which transports the grapes to the 50 hl pneumatic wine press. The duration of the pressing lasts about 2 hours. The juices flow by gravity into the tank. In the approach of culture and organic production, the juices being of quality, without synthetic chemicals harmful to yeasts, they are preserved in the wine. The turbidity of the must guarantees a good supply of yeasts and vinification in vats does not therefore require the addition of yeast. The fermentation starts spontaneously under the action of the natural yeasts of the grape. For a dry white wine, fermentation continues until the sugars run out, with the control of the temperature 19°C.
