The vineyards of the Pays Nantais and their Muscadet Sèvre and Maine

 The Vines 

Melon de Bourgogne unique grape variety

A fourteen-hectare group of plots lying in the small village of la Pétière benefits from a variety of years of planting, and allows for the selection of plots for each cuvee. The oldest were planted in the 1950s and the most recent in 2016. For each new plantation, the planting density increases by 10%, reaching 7,700 vine plants / ha instead of 7,000.
This plant heritage is cultivated in the traditional manner, according to the Nantes method, and respects the local traditions. The particularly steep plots offer a favorable south or south-east exposure and are difficult to cultivate.

The location of the vineyard is singularas it lies next to the natural area of the Cantrie and along the bank of the Sèvre river. Therefore, it obliges me, with a concern for the respect of biodiversity, to convert my vineyard in organic agriculture (Agriculture Biologique). This conversion will be certified in 2021.
Stopping herbicides and returning to the plow also allows the microbial life to grow in the soil and forces the roots to penetrate through the rock.
