Muscadet Sèvre-&-Maine Sur Lie
Loire :: France
Domaine “la Haute Févrie” lies 18 km south-east of Nantes, right in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine protected designation of origin. The estate vines grow on the hills overlooking the Sèvre, between Saint-Fiacre and Monnières. The family has produced four generations of winemakers that have carefully tended to their vines to ensure that they produce the very best grapes possible. Working both organically and bio dynamically they look to produce wines that are pure to their origins and absorb the soil which gives them life.
Today the estate covers 30 hectares of vineyards, all within the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine protected designation of origin. It is made up of several plots, each with a different aspect and soil: siliceous clay or gravelly and shallow, all on metamorphic rock (gneiss, orthogneiss and amphibolites), resulting in a range of highly individual “clos”: Le Clos de la Févrie, Les Mauguitonnières, Les Gras moutons (Saint-Fiacre), Le Clos Joubert, Le Moulin de la Gustais, Le Clos du Pégatine and many others. Working vineyards in prized areas, they craft some of the best value wines on the planet.
