Domaine de la Furonnière

Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine, Loire

A generations-old family-run winery situated in the heart of the Loire Valley just east of Nantes, Domaine de la Furonnière has a dedication for crafting expressions of the land in each bottle. Passing down techniques from grandfather, to father, to son, and now led by vigneron Daniel Bonneau, the Domaine works each vintage to bring out the taste of the Loire in every sip, producing the purest expression of the land, with as little manipulation as possible.

The estate is situated in the village of Landreau, South-East of Nantes, about 15 km from the Loire river. Being so close to the ocean, the vineyards benefit from a unique cooling microclimate. The terroir itself is as idyllic as land can be: touched with fossilized shells that give the Loire wines an enticing minerality, the region is also covered with quartz and silex pebbles. The microclimate and unique soils come together harmoniously, as the 50-year-old vines absorb the cool-climate air and thrive in the earth. Vineyards span almost 30 hectares, with plantings dominated by Muscadet, with smaller amounts of Gros Plant, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Gamay and Cabernet.


Muscadet Sevre et Maine

Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine, Loire

A must-try for the lovers of dry, aromatic whites. The historic family-run estate and the land come together to produce a wine that defines ‘purity.’ Overflowing with kiwi, grapefruit, white peach, apple, and lemon fruits, the wine is, of course, balanced with the distinctive minerality that can only come from Muscade. A wine that starts and ends with the best the ocean has to offer, it’s a fresh oyster, cracked-crab taste of the Loire terroir. A wine to share (if you’re willing), this is a new discovery for those with a penchant for balanced, crisp whites; a gem straight from France.
