The Melon de Bourgogne grape always delivers wonderful freshness and cutting acidity, ensuring it always pairs exquisitely with food of equally high acid - think goats' cheese salad, crudités. Here the winemakers allow for ageing of six months on the lees however - a method that leaves the grape juice in contact with dead yeast cells following fermentation, bringing with it a lovely rounded texture so the wine isn't just a one-trick pony.
Producing Muscadet for more than 150 years on the site of a medieval residence which was at the origin of the commune of Chapelle-Heulin, Domaine Bonnet-Huteau is located right in the heart of the Sèvre et Maine appellation.
Today Jean-Jacques Bonnet and Vincent Pineau are highly dedicated towards developing wines from this region that are full of flavour, trying (and succeeding) to shift opinion away from the dated view that Muscadet can be slightly generic. The end result is the creation of wines reflecting the best quality and minerality of each terroir. Their vine-growing also very much respects both soil and nature, leading to the domain being certified organic and biodynamic.
