MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE - MUSCADET Rémi Pineau REMI PINEAU

REMI PINEAU

AOC : MUSCADET SEVRE ET MAINE, MUSCADET

The domaine de la Robinière is located in the Muscadet region, next to the city of Nantes, in the Lower Loire region. Rémi Pineau produces a Muscadet and an original Chardonnay. The wines of this region are uniquely influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and a special part of this terroir is the detectable and piquant touch of saline imparted by the salt laden breezes blowing in from the ocean.Part of the vineyard was replanted about 10 years ago. Well managed for generations, the Muscadet from Rémi Pineau has a bright golden color. The most mature vines are about 30 years old and produce a great Muscadet Sèvres and Maine.

A good Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine winehas subtle apple and citrus aromas, sometimes dressed with gentle hints of pepper and even a slight salinity evocative of the Nantais' maritime location. The best examples also have a certain underlying minerality, often thought to be a reflection of the chalky soils that characterize the best Muscadet vineyards.

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.
