Domaine René Mosse

Agnes and René Mosse produce terroir-driven wines from their home in the village of Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay, in the Coteaux-du-Layon area of Anjou. The area is blessed with a unique micro-climate due to the presence of the Layon, a small tributary to the Loire River. These conditions allow for a long hang-time on the vines, and also provide ideal conditions for the production of botrytis-affected wines.

Before turning their hand to winemaking, the Mosses had owned a wine-bar in the provincial capital city of Tours. Having been inspired by the winemakers that they met there, they took the plunge and enrolled in a viticulture & oenology course, before purchasing their 13 hectare estate in 1999. They work their vineyards in an extremely labour-intensive fashion, using biodynamic preparations. With all the efforts put into vineyard work, it is equally important to them to vinify in a natural fashion, and they are particularly attentive to minimizing the use of sulphur.

All the wines are barrel-fermented and aged, and usually the whites go through their malolactic fermentation. The barrels are renewed as needed: Agnes & René use them as containers, not oak flavour providers!

Their Anjou Blanc sec is produced from younger vines, which they planted in 2001 & 2002. All grapes are hand-harvested before a slow vinification process that allows the wines to go through full malolactic fermentation. Expect notes of wild honey, fleshy apricots, quince paste and woodspice. As the wine opens up, secondary nutty aromatics develop, along with layer after layer of rich flavour.
