Details

Muscadet Gabbro Bellevue, organic wine, natural wine, wild yeast, unique terroir called Gabbro, soft, fresh fruity Muscadet with balance and length. The 'Terroir Gabbro' is made up of an unusual black and green rock mixed with sand. The rocks give the wine its minerality and the sand its fleshy fruit character. What makes this wine so delicious is its freshness, acidity, 'pointu' as they say in French, or pointed, sharp, crisp, defined. It makes for such a moreish wine that if you open it before dinner while cooking, the bottle has more or less gone by the time you have boiled the pasta! It is ideal of course for shellfish but try with goats cheese as well.


Jérôme Bretaudeau's story is one of passion for wine and only wine. He set up the 9 hectare Domaine in 2005 after working for over 15 years at other estates and learning the ins and outs of wine making. The soils at Domaine de Bellevue are what give it the capability to make hand crafted terroir wines which truly vary from soil to soil. They are are made up pockets of clay interspersed with silica pebbles, white and pink quartz and also some volcanic rocks allowing strong minerality and complexity for the wines. The vines are old and various with unusual grape varieties for the Muscadet area (Chardonnay, Gamay, Merlot, Pinot Gris and others). Internships with Jo Landon and Guy Bossard (two giants of the area) gave him the taste for natural wine making and thus since 2009 he has been certified organic. The wines are elegant, precise and for me even more characterful than those of his former mentor Jo Ladron.
