True expression of Melon de Bourgogne – terroir-driven 

Domaine Luneau-Papin

Pierre-Marie Luneau heads this 50-hectare estate in Le Landreau, where small hamlets dot a landscape of vineyards on low hills. Their estate, also known as Domaine Pierre de la Grange, has been in existence since the early 18th century when it was already planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the Muscadet appellation’s single varietal. After taking over from his father Pierre in 2011, Pierre-Marie became the ninth generation of his family to make wine in the area.

The Luneau family has opted for producing smaller cuvées from their several plots, which are always vinified separately so a s to reflect their terroir’s particular character. The soil is mainly micaschist and gneiss, but some plots are a mix of silica, volcanic rocks and schist. The estate has a high proportion of old vines, 40 years old on average, up to 65 years of age. Through his minimal intervention approach, Pierre-Marie is able to harness the potential of his terroir and offer up a true expression of Melon de Bourgogne. It is no surprise that his wines are always packed with salinity and mineral quality, ensuring they are extremely food-friendly yet equally delicious as an aperitif.

Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine sur lie ‘Garance’ 2022

100% Melon de Bourgogne. Great value, everyday drinking bone-dry white. The character is lean; fruit is saline lemon, with a zesty, prickly acidity. Smoky and bread-y on the nose with added texture from extended time on the lees. 2019 marks Luneau’s first vintage with official organic accreditation, and a move towards lowering the additional sulphites added to the wine.
