Muscadet Sèvre-&-Maine Sur Lie Le Fils des Gras Moutons
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. They enjoy optimum ripening conditions and the Muscadet they produce is highly expressive of the soil it grew on. 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. 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. No chemical fertilizers used in vineyards. This combined with painstaking methods in the cellar result in complex and elegant wines.
