Gadais Père et Fils Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine-Sur-Lie Vieilles Vignes, 2017


Category: France, LOIRE, Gadais Père et Fils, 2017

The Gadais have been specialising in making quality Muscadet since the early 1950’s. Based in the village of Saint-Fiacre in the heart of the Sèvre et Maine district.

Planted for the most part in 1929 Vieilles Vignes. The product of rigorous mass selection, these nearly one-hundred year old vine stocks thriving on the Terroir of Saint-Fiacre continue to produce sun-ripened grapes.

Refined by four successive generations of the Gadais Family, the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie “Vieilles Vignes” is the Estate’s flagship wine.

This exceptional Muscadet is only produced during great years, so as to guarantee the highest level of quality.
