"Dans des tonalités plus solaires, deux 2020 sont à découvrir : Gula-Ana, d’une belle carrure, aux amers stimulants et aux notes de fruits blancs mûrs; et Excelsior, d’une profondeur vivifiante encore plus importante qui lui promet un avenir serein de plus de quinze ans." RVF Guide

The Estate Pierre Luneau-Papin

Pierre-Marie and Marie represent the 9th generation of the Domaine and continue the dazzling adventure of the Domaine Luneau-Papin on the forty hectares of vineyards located in the communes of Le Landreau, La Chapelle-Heulin and Vallet. The stars of the appellation are now working hard to make their great Muscadet wines shine, vintage after vintage, and through their success, the entire appellation. Wine lovers have now (finally) understood that the Melon de Bourgogne, associated with its great terroirs with great whites for ageing and the know-how of the best winegrowers, can only result in great wines worthy of the best whites in France.. The range of Domaine Luneau-Papin is rich, because the objective remains to reveal each parcel and its terroir, always thanks to this famous neutral grape variety, the blotter of the terroir... The soils are very varied and complex, sometimes dominated by gneiss, granite, schist, peridotite or even serpentinite. Each cuvée has its own personality thanks to the terroir from which it comes, but there is a common denominator to all of these great parcel-based Muscadets; perfectly balanced wines with very intense, fat and very mineral noses. These are wines that can be kept for a long time, just like their Burgundian cousins from Chablis..

The Estate Sottimano

Rino Sottimano took over the estate in 1975. His son Andrea joined him in 1994 along with Elena and Claudia. The vineyard is located in the heart of the superb Barbaresco terroirs and the Cotta, Currà, Fausoni, Pajorè and Basarin crus and now covers 18 hectares. The vines are cultivated organically with the utmost respect for the terroir. The wines are aged in barrels according to Burgundy principles (not in tuns). The wines are neither filtered nor fined. The production of the estate is gradually joining the best references of the region with prices still very reasonable considering the growing reputation of the estate. Quote from Rino Sottimano: "I always believe that every great wine is the result of serious, conscientious and passionate work in the vineyards. This is why, from day one, I have always tried to avoid all chemical products and herbicides, to preserve the natural balance of our soils."
