2010 Luneau Papin Muscadet Terre De Pierre
"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
