About This Wine
The Domaine de la Chauviniere is the quintessential Muscadet; crisp, delicious and racy., and most of all incredible value.
Domain de la Chauvinière is located on the top of the hillsides of the Maine river which gives its name to the appellation AOC Sèvre et Maine. The terroir is unique, a granite of Château-Thébaud, it represents only about 4% of the appellation, a small island in the heart of the Muscadet vineyard. The soil is shallow (20 to 30 cms) and consists of coarse sand, gravel, pebbles. It is a hot and well-drained soil that guarantees an early budding of the vines. The bedrock (granite of Château-Thébaud) is faulted vertically and highly fractured. This allows the vine roots to go deep, where they always find some water and minerals to ensure the continuity of these cycles and thus offer perfectly ripe grapes with a beautiful sugar/acid balance.
