Description

Wine International magazine decreed, “the revival of Muscadet is coming from growers like Gadais”. Theirs is a 4th-generation estate, run today by father and son, Christophe and Pierre Gadais. It was founded in 1952 by Louis Gadais – one of the first winemakers in Nantes to bottle his own wines (most was sold to merchants in bulk). Les Perrières is from their very best vineyard, planted in the 1950s. It’s a very small plot, just 1.4 hectares, on gneiss-rich soils. The grapes, all Melon de Bourgogne (the only one permitted in Muscadet) are half fermented in 300-litre old oak barrels and half in stainless steel vats, and aged a full 32 months on its lees. This lends a roundness, creaminess and weight to the wine. A fine partner to seafood.
