Description

The nose of this lip-smacking Loire Valley white is filled with delicious notes of ripe lemons, wet stone, and white flowers with a hint of butter. The palate is medium-weighted and saline with citrus skins and lemon pulp. The finish is a concentrated mix of more-ish bitterness and a salty touch.

Domaine Bonnet-Huteau is run by passionate winegrowers Jean-Jacques, Rémi Bonnet and Vincent Pineau. Family-owned for over 150 years, it sits in the centre of the Sèvre et Maine appellation. Here they strive to develop the full range of flavours achievable from well-grown Muscadet and the minerality of each terroir they own (gneiss, mica schists, amphibolite and granite). Viticultural practices are respectful of the soil and nature, now conducted biodynamically (Biodyvin certified). Respect for people, the environment and nature are critical points in the approach and daily work of the estate. In the vineyards, the objective of the winegrowers is to promote the life of the soil and the natural defences of the vine thanks to organic and biodynamic work, which allows minerality and finesse to express themselves in the wines. In the cellar, they take a low-intervention approach that naturally accompanies the wine during the vinification process to create “living wines” that reflect the wonderful Muscadet terroirs.

The Les Gautronnières cuvée comes from Melon de Bourgogne vines planted on amphibolite rocks on silico-clay soil. Vineyards are organic certified by Ecocert and biodynamic certified by Biodyvin.
