2019 Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur lie, Grand Mouton, Louis Métaireau

This is the flagship wine of the estate, and offers the best of Muscadet: pale lemon yellow, a little citrus and blossom on the nose, an elegant, defined length, with some savoury structure from lees ageing bringing it all together. This is an absolutely charming Muscadet. In 2019 it has an effortless freshness, and poised balance.

2019 Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur lie, Grand Mouton, Louis Métaireau
Louis Metaireau

The name of this domaine has disappointingly little to do with sheep: rather, Mouton comes from the French word for a small hill, Motte. Sèvre et Maine is probably Muscadet’s most famous area, and Marie-Luce Métaireau and Jean-François Guilbaud have, since 1988, crafted one of the very best examples. This is their flagship wine, and comes from vines that date back to 1937, giving serious density and concentration.
