[Live] Muscadet's crus : melon b grape, an open window on terroirs ?

Muscadet’s crus communaux are the best wines that the Nantes wine region has to offer. Complex with excellent aging potential, Muscadet’s crus communaux are a perfect choice for fine dining. While the young vintages are lively and delightful, it is upon aging that these wines reveal their opulence: they are the great wines of Val de Loire.

Produced from low-yield grapevines and the result of long maturing on lees—a minimum of eighteen to twenty-four months—these wines reveal the exceptional nature of the subsoil of their outstanding terroirs (Granite, gabbro, schistes, gneiss...). Muscadet’s ten crus communaux are cultivated on two hundred hectares (494 acres) of vineyard by one hundred winegrowers.
Each cru communal has its own personality, a reflection of its singular terroir, that expresses itself distinctly upon tasting.
