    Luneau-Papin "La Grange" Muscadet Sèvre & Maine '20

    Loire Valley

    Luneau-Papin "La Grange" Muscadet Sèvre & Maine '20

    If ever there were a perfect everyday white wine, it’s Muscadet, and the wines Luneau-Papin are great examplex. Muscadet is the name of a region in the Pays Nantais, on the Atlantic coast in western France, where the Loire river meets the sea. The name also refers to the bracingly dry white wine of the same name, made from the grape now known as Melon B (formerly Melon de Bourgogne). Among its many merits, Muscadet is incredibly versatile with food, capable of complexity (all the more reason to stock up on this bottle), and low in alcohol, all of which make it a great everyday wine. 

    Luneau-Papin is among the best producers of Muscadet, and is oft praised for the quality and value of its wines. The estate, also known as Pierre de la Grange, is in the heart of Muscadet country and has been making wine since the early 18th century.  “La Grange” comes from a parcel of vines planted in 1974 on mica schist soils, which tends to yield chiseled, fresh wines.   Fermentation was carried out by natural yeasts. Vinification and maturation occurred sur lie (on the lees) in underground vats lined with glass tiles for seven months, until bottling in summertime.
