Why Buy Me

Domaine Luneau Papin, stemming from the 17th century now in its 9th generation incarnation is a certified organic and bio-dynamic producer, factors that are indicators of excellence but no guarantee.  In the case of this Domaine,  we can confirm that their Muscadets comfortably occupy the space of ‘Best in Class’,  in our view their Muscadets are as good as they get.  Pierre Luneau-Papin and his wife Marie now carry the baton for the family as they carefully etch out the Melon de Bourgogne grapes from their historic, site-specific vineyards and craft their highly acclaimed wines. Read more.

Winemaker's Pitch

This important cuvée comes from a vineyard planted in 1954, bedrock of gneiss and quartz, in the village of La Chapelle Heulin. Bedrock of gneiss and quartz. This intense mouth-filling expression of the Melon de Bourgogne was aged on its lees for 10 months adding extra texture and depth. A triumph when served with Langoustines, ceviche of scallops, salt crusted sea bass, fresh goat’s cheese.

Press Reviews

"Muscadet, but not as you know it. Fresh, crisp but full, with whiff of warm croissant!"
