John Gilman - View from the Cellar:

"This cuvée was launched in the 2008 vintage as “Terre de Pierre”, but was renamed for the actual vineyard name of Butte de la Roche in 2010. This is a great site, with a unique geological composition and the 2010 version has done great justice to this superb terroir. The bouquet is deep, bright, complex and classy, wafting from the glass in a mix of lemon, ocean breeze, a touch of dried flowers, a very complex base of stony soil tones, just a whisper of lees and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and utterly seamless, with stunning complexity, great focus and poise, a lovey core, brisk, ripe acids and outstanding length and grip on the dancing finish. This is one of the best young bottles of Muscadet I have ever had the pleasure to taste! 2013-2030+."

Product Description:

"Pierre et Monique Luneau-Papin head this 50-hectare estate in Le Landreau, in the heart of Muscadet country, where small hamlets dot a landscape of vineyards on low hills. Their estate, also known as Domaine Pierre de la Grange, has been in existence since the early 18th century when it was already planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the Muscadet varietal. Pierre and Monique are the eighth generation of winemakers in the family."

"Grapes are crushed by pneumatic press. Must is transferred by gravity into underground tanks covered in glass tiles. Wine ferments and ages on the lees for 12 months. Regular bâtonnage, then aged in wood vats without racking for 8 months." -Importer
