Domaine de l'Ecu "La Divina" Methode Traditionelle Sparkling
From the producer: "At a time when modern oenology triumphs, we often have a tendency to forget that a great wine is conceived above all with the vine: ploughing of the ground, output control, canopy management, manual grape harvesting and respect of the biotope. Ahead of its time, Le Domaine de l'écu has been certified as an organic agriculturist since 1975 and certified in Biodynamics since 1988 (Demeter) for the whole if its 22 hectares. In addition, we have renounced all artificial technology in our cellars to break with the movement of standardization of wines and preserve the bond linking each one of our vats to a particular soil and a particular vintage. For this reason, we are proud to belong to the group "Renaissance des Appellations" who strongly recommend this respect of the soil and who gather together a large number of the great French wine producers. Enamored to restore the reputation of the vineyards of the Nantes region, we produce dry white wines for keeping which are at the same time crystal clear, of a great purity and impressed with an exacerbated minerality. Our three "Grande Cuvée de Terroir", Gneiss, Orthogneiss and Granite are today present at the grandest tables all over the world. Muscadet is a high-class white wine of the Loire Valley - spread the word!"
