2014 Michel Bregeon Gros Plant du Pays Nantais, 750ml

Availability: In stock (4)

A racy, crisp and extemely dry white wine from a rightly lauded producer near Nantes. Although the area around the mouth of the Loire River is best known for its muscadet, and indeed Bregeon is a renown for his muscadet, there are serveral other varieties that've long been grown in the region as well. Gros Plant is the local name for Folle Blanche, a grape perhaps best known for appearing in famous brandies like Cognac because they bring much need acidity. Likewise, this Loire still white has ripping acidity that perfect for dry Riesling, Chenin or Juracon drinkers.

From the mouth of the importer (Kermit Lynch):

"Michel Brégeon is part renegade, part crusader, and full-blown terroirist. Over the years, he has become an ardent defender of the Muscadet-Sèvre-et-Maine terroir, the most highly regarded of the four appellations in the Pays Nantais. Thanks to his deep understanding of the nuances of the land, he plays the game much differently than the region’s caves cooperatives and negociants, who produce en masse and lose the subtlety of the appellation."
