Translated to mean 'the son of the fat sheep', this delicious Muscadet is made by Claude Branger, a committed grower who farms his 61 acres in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation completely sustainably, with an attention to detail that translates to wines of superior quality. He harvests by hand, and bottles without fining or filtration. This is his entry-level Muscadet and a glorious value for the price. It is dry and fresh, with tangy lemony citrus aromas and flavors, delicate creaminess on the midpalate, and a minerally finish. You wi... Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Offers lime and lemon zest notes, with a hint of sel gris. Presents a fresh, bright finish. Drink now." (9/2014) K&L Notes: This Muscadet is very pure and bright, with an intense floral bouquet with overtones of spice and fruit. The richness, balance and freshness of this wine make it an excellent example of its appellation. It is enjoyable young, but will age well for several years. It is, however, unlikely you'll be able to save some--it's that good. Perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood dishes.

This one is showing absolutely superbly! The "Symbiose" is a selection of vines which are grown in amphibolites soils. Sharp steely minerals, up front brightness with nice reach across the palate and a good juicy length. Just a touch more density across the palate with a broader sense of texture reaching through the finish.
50 year old vines planted in Amphibolite and Metagabbro soils. Light and crispy with mouthwatering minerals and a lean but very balanced finish. A fantastic fresh and vibrant white to have on hand at all times. Can be served as the perfect aperitif. But, even better with straight out of the ocean crustaceans, crusty bread and a group of good friends. (Eric story, Loire Buyer)
Organically farmed vineyard, Demeter-certified since 1998. The winery's notes: "Nose is subtle and elegant with the zest of citrus fruits, white flowers, spices such as ginger and cumin, and notes of flint, dried fruits and toasted almonds. The attack is sharp and focused, with great purity and elegance on the palate. Finishes with salty, chalky and slightly smokey notes. A wine with the an excellent ability to age."
A 4 hectare plot of 20-60 year old vines planted on ancient granite. Historical documents have been found giving evidence that there were vines planted here as far back as 1694. This is a very special plot and the wines show it. Very fresh on the palate with good, rich mineral along with ripe citrus. A very understated and pleasant texture and long finish.

Stéphane Orieux, son of Joseph (a pioneer in organic winemaking), now runs the domaine which is nestled within the Sévre-et-Maine appellation in the village of Valet. Stéphane's winemaking style can be summed up as mineral driven elegance with varietal character and nuance. The Clos de Coudray bottling comes from highly sought after old vines within a small parcel planted and granite soils. The combination of the granite and old vines shoots through with unquestionable canny. This wine is somewhat tight up front with layered texture and good structure th... Read More »
