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 converted to organic production in 2009. 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). He uses a combination of large clay eggs and used barrels to ferment and mature his wines. 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 characterful.

    We enjoyed this wine at L’Enclume Signature wine pairing with a beautiful meal in October 2019; I was so pleased to find it online with Buon Vino! It’s delicious.
