Pierre Luneau-Papin PM&M Muscadet Garance 2019
Domaine Luneau-Papin was established in the 1990s after Pierre Luneau and Monique Papin, having both been working in their own vineyards since the 1970s, fell in love. Having seen the importance in maintaining and cultivating their vineyards (that were established as far back as the 17th century), they decided to covert to completely biodynamic and organic practices in their vineyards, and retired in 2018, passing on the torch to their son Pierre-Marie and his partner Marie, who look to continue to build on his parent's, and the 7 generations prior's work.
Muscadet made from hand harvested Melon de Bourgogne and aged on the lees for 7 months. Refreshing notes of citrus with a steely minerality and a hint of hay and toast accompanied with a lovely texture makes this one of our favourite Muscadets, and a very affordable one at that.
