Presentation

The wine
The Pond des Cadets range embodies the values of diversity, passion and generosity which are shared by our winegrowers.
Situation
Located in Nantes vineyards, the Muscadet region cover around 23 communes (Vallet, Clisson, Loroux Bottereau and Vertou).
Terroir
Overlooking the Sèvre River, the Melon de Bourgogne vines grow on an unusual soil composed of granite, gneiss, gabbro and amphibolite. Each type contributes to the unique character of this “Pont des Cadets” and has a favorable effect on ripening.
Vinification
The grapes are gently pressed. Traditional vinification in thermo-regulated vats to preserve the aromatic potential.
Maturing
Aged on the lees (labeled “sur lie”) for at least 8 months that gives to the wine its subtle texture, roundness and delightful flavors.
Varietals
Melon de Bourgogne : 100%
