Muscadet Sèvre & Maine sur Lie
By the Loire, where Gabares boats sail on Europe’s last wild river, carried by the winds and the currents, there is an organic vineyard. The winemakers take particular care when working the soil, their know-how is reserved for minimal intervention with the vines. All their efforts are focused on monitoring and anticipating natural processes. The grape quality is the key to the wine. In vats, as on the vine, nature is allowed to express itself.
