Details

Muscadet Granit, Organic wine, 100% Melon de Bourgogne, Granitic soils, complex, mineral, steely, taught natural white wine. comes from the 55 year old vines on the estate. The soils, unlike Gabbro, are sandy with silica deposits and marine stones made up of decomposed granite and this is what gives the wine its distinctive minerality. The fermentation is with the natural grape yeasts and the wine is given batonnage weekly to add texture and flavour and also aid the autolysis of the natural yeasts. Savoury as well as fruity with a note of smokiness to the nose and a very persistent finish, this is delicious but complex Muscadet.


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.
