Luneau Papin 'Le Verger' Muscadet Sèvre Et Maine Sur Lie, France 2020
Pierre-Marie and Marie Luneau head this 39 hectare family estate in Le Landreau, a village in the heart of Muscadet country. Since taking over from his father Pierre in 2011, Pierre-Marie became the ninth generation to make wine in the area. The Luneau family opted for producing many smaller cuvées from their several plots, which are always vinified separately so as to reflect their terroir’s particular character. This wine comes from a single parcel of the same name. The Luneau family are pioneers in this regard and still amongst the only producers in Muscadet to bottle single vineyard expressions of their land. They've been doing it since the 80's.
