Domaine Bonnet-Huteau is situated in the center of their Muscadet vineyard, in the Sèvre & Maine appellation, 20km from Nantes and 10km from Clisson. This domain has been producing some Muscadet for more than 150 years and was previously a Medieval house where the little town of La Chapelle Heulin finds its roots. Winemakers Jean-Jacques, Rémi Bonnet, and Vincent Pineau work with their four vineyards- Les Gautronnières (green rocks and amphibolite), Les Laures (granite), Les Clos Moulin Chartrie (orthogneiss), and Le Cru Goulaine (mica schist) with the goal of expresses each soil and the minerality it has to offer. The winery and vineyards are certified organic and biodynamic.
On the nose, citrus and chalk aromas jump out of the glass with some slight floral notes. On the palate, firm, minerality is the star of the show, with added citrus and lively acidity. Pair this with a selection of Maritime oysters, a large sushi platter, or an East Coast favourite- fish and chips.
Made from 100% Melon de Bourgogne, the grapes come from vines that are anywhere from 5-30 years old and are grown on shallow soil of mica schiste and gneiss. Grown according to organic viticulture methods, after harvest, they are slow pressed and not crushed then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine rests on the lees for 6 months prior to bottling and release.
Domaine Bonnet Huteau have been making wine for over 150 years in this corner of the Loire valley and is now in the hands of Jean and Remi Bonnet. The winery has been certified organic for over 15 years now and they employ biodynamic farming practices. The Les Bonnets Blanc is a fine, slightly creamy wine that shows subtle flavours of lemon and peach and finishes with a nice chalky minerality. Definitely thirst quenching! If you are unfamiliar with Muscadet, try it with your favourite fish cake recipe or a shellfish pasta and thank me later.
