Mates with Pepiere (another benchmark Muscadet producer we stock when available).
With its gabbro soils, this site is arguably the best terroir for Muscadet. Gabbro, a blue-green volcanic rock formed by magma eruptions under the ocean floor, is rarely found in vineyard land.
Vibrant volcanic essence of minerals, lemon-lime mineral sea spray jumps out of the glass, it's in large part responsible for this crisp blanc’s complexity and core of stony, zesty citrus. Crab-apple tart pears. Classic expression of Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine. Bursting with the French trifecta of mineral briskness, bright acidity, and riveting salinity.
The result is an irresistible wine with the brisk, saline, citrus-tinged freshness that’s made Brégeon a legend at temples of cuisine like the MICHELIN-starred Farmhouse Inn, the Marshall Store, and Chez Panisse.
