MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE Christophe et Thierry Luneau MARTIN LUNEAU

MARTIN LUNEAU

aoc : MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE

Domaine Martin Luneau is a long-established winery in the Lower Loire region. Four generations later, brothers Christophe and Thierry Luneau are at the center of the trend to bring the best out of the Muscadet with the creation of the new Crus: Gorges, Clisson and Pallet. The winery is situated 2km from Clisson, a medieval town with Italian influences and a good starting point for excursions along the Sèvre Nantaise.The Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine sub-appellation is the most productive and notable region of Muscadet, producing more than three-quarters of the region's entire production.

More AOC Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine is produced on a yearly basis than in any other single AOC in the entire Loire Valley . Around 45% of the wine made Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine is aged sur lie. The wines made in this style tend to be slightly fuller body and can have some of the texture and mouth feel of a white . Well made examples – such as those from Domaine Martin Luneau -- will have a balance of fruit, acidity and texture. Muscadet Sèvre is mostoften paired with seafood and has been called the perfect wine for oysters.

AOC/AOP

Two concepts central to higher end French wines are the notion of "terroir", which links the style of the wines to the specific locations where the grapes are grown and the wine is made, and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) France and (AOP) Appellation d’Origine Protégée Europe system. Appellation rules closely define which grape varieties and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or even specific vineyards.

We do not select wines based on them being organic, biodynamic, or sustainable, but many of the wines produced by our winemakres fall in to one or more of these categories. The US regulations for organic wines are different from the French regulations for organic wines. Therefore, the French organic wines can’t carry on the bottle the French organic logo. We will mentionned in our descriptif if the wine is labeled organic in France.
