Terroirs are our source of excellence
Our terroirs are our key source of inspiration. The Muscadet region is the largest dry white wine making region in Europe.
There are, however, many diverse styles of Muscadet due to the region’s differing terroirs.
Beneath our vineyard plots, we find various rocks, including two-mica gneiss, gabbro and micaschist.
A section of gneiss slopes down to the micaschist of Saint Fiacre (Château du Coing) towards Monnières (Grand Fief de la Cormeraie). Due to the confluence, the vines of Château du Coing grow on south-facing slopes, which is rare in the Muscadet region. Micaschist is a type of weathered rock that we find in Monnières.
The wines of Château du Coing show floral and fruity notes like lily, wild carnation, pear, and peach and have very nice minerality, which gives them an elegant style.
The wines of our Cormeraie vineyard are driven by ripe fruit aromas, like peach and apricot.
Sur la commune de Gorges, Le Château de la Gravelle repose sur des Gabbros altérés et des argiles à quartz. Les raisins sont à maturité tardive. La dégustation révèle des vins sur les notes fumées et de pierre à fusil, une très belle minéralité.
In Gorges, our Château de la Gravelle has a subsoil of weathered gabbro and clay with quartz. The grapes here are late ripening. The wines shows smokiness and notes of gunflint, giving them very nice minerality.
