We’ve worked with Jérémie Huchet and his father Yves at Domaine de la Chauvinière for many years. Each year, we taste Muscadets from lots of other producers but this one always comes out top.
Domaine de la Chauviniere is located in the premium Sevre-et-Maine region with the vineyards located on granite soils known as ‘granit de Château-Thébaud’. These give the wine its elegant mineral and complex structure
Like the best Muscadets, it’s aged on its lees over winter to add a delicious aromatic intensity and richness of flavour
The estate vineyards are on average 45 years old, with some up to 90 years old. Consequently, the wines show immense concentration of fruit
Tasting note Look forward to classic Muscadet characters with beautiful minerality and sea-breeze freshness. An impressive concentration of ripe, tangy citrus fruit with a racy, ultra-cleansing finish, it’s the perfect match for seafood.
