Description

This dry white wine is 100% Folle Blanche, or Gros Plant, a variety used in the Nantais to produce a very dry white with good acidity similar to Muscadet or Picpoul from the Languedoc. Leesy, creamy aromas but super dry, light, zesty, citrus fruit make this a great aperitif or seafood wine and an absolute bargain.

  • Production Notes
  • Producer
  • Delivery Information

One of the leading domaines of the Nantais, Pierre Luneau-Papin, hails from a long line of vignerons. The Luneau family is well established in the region; their presence here may be traced as far back as the late 17th Century. Pierre and Monique, his wife, are the 7th generation of vignerons to run Domaine Luneau-Papin, which was founded by Pierre's forebears in the 18th Century.

Having gained experience with Emile Peynaud and Pascal Ribéreau-Gayon, both of the Faculty of Oenology of Bordeaux, it is perhaps no surprise that Luneau-Papin is one of Muscadet's leading lights.

The family estate now consists of approximately 40ha of organic vines, with 38ha planted to Melon de Bourgogne located about 20 kilometres from Nantes itself. The vines have 45 years on average with some over 70. The wines produced are strikingly pure, with each cuvée expressing its unique soil-signature. They never fail to impress.

Disappointed - sorry

I like Loire valley crisp white wines with a relatively low alcohol level e.g. Muscadet, but I m afraid that this example was over my tolerance threshold for acidity. Would love to think it may 'develop and improve' being young, but as its closure is screw cap and its not a serious wine I doubt it.

New discovery

I hadn't heard of this grape before but I thought the wine was really good (particularly for the price). As the description says, it did remind me of a Muscadet or Picpoul. Zesty and maybe a bit of saltiness. Really enjoyed it.

Keep this to yourself

Very taken aback at just how good this wine is. A million miles away from the thin, acid Gros Plant of many a fishy repast during my years in France. Well structured and fresh, loving food as much as solitude. Just leave some for me ...

A Discovery

Had this wine in a restaurant known for its owner's attention to it wine list. Reasonably priced, filling a gap in my cellar.
