Domaine de la Geraudrie Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine Sur Lie Clos De La Geraudrie Granite 2022 750ml
Domaine de la Géraudrie is a 5th generation, family-owned Muscadet estate located just 15km south of Nantes, in the village of Château-Thébaud. This renowned cru of Muscadet has long been known for its beautiful granite bedrock that sits underneath a topsoil of sandy loam. It is a terroir perfectly suited for making Muscadet that is full of tension and bright salty minerality. The Cormerais family, led by Benjamin and his father Bertrand oversee the domaine, where they put a spotlight on the unique terroirs of the estate. The focus of the family is deeply rooted in conscientious and sustainable farming that is critical in their quest to harvest healthy balanced fruit. In the cellar, they use a hands-off approach, primarily vinifying and aging in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. One of the flagships of the estate is the old vine Clos de la Géraudrie, which has long been known as a top vineyard in the region, sitting on that famed solid granite that gives the wine its distinct crunchy and mouthwatering minerality. It is a wine that perfectly encapsulates the stellar work that the Cormerais family has been undertaking to show the true potential of Muscadet.
