Details

Muscadet Gaia, Organic wine, 100% Melon de Bourgogne, Granitic soils, complex, mineral, taught natural white wine. Gaia is the top Muscadet from Jerome's magnificent assortment of world class white wines. It is from the oldest vineyard of Melon de Bourgogne, managed according to natural and some biodyanmic principles of course and then the juice is fermented and aged in Amphorae which gives this Melon a unique expression. There is richness but always with incredible tension, seemless body, acidity, texture, sinewy flow and precision. Stunning white, a match for many a fine Burgundy, who said Muscadet is dull.They have obviously never tasted the wines of Domaine de Belle Vue.


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.
