Pierre Luneau-papinLoire, France
Pierre Luneau studied with the renowned Emile Peynaud and has been making excellent Muscadet for years.
His Domaine du Verger wine from the schists of Landreau (20km south east of Nantes) smacks of Petit Chablis: white flowers, stones and water. The production is largely (although not completely) organic utilising organic manures and 'lutte raisonnée' on the vines. Muscadet probably gets its name from a medieval variety of Muscat, which has since been replanted with Melon de Bourgogne - a rather neutral grape which benefits from lees ageing (hence the 'sur lie'.)
