Gadais Père et Fils

France

For many years, Muscadet seemed a wine long out of fashion, a throwback to another age, its name besmirched by thin commercial wines of little character and distinction. Yet like all great classics, these signature wines of the Loire Valley, the traditional accompaniment to oysters and the rich marine bounty of the Loire estuary, are finding new expression in the hands of gifted winemakers.

Domaine Gadais Père et Fils, under the direction of Christophe Gadais as the fourth generation winemaker, is at the forefront of these new developments. An angler who enjoys fishing the Sèvre and Maine rivers in his free time, Christophe is particularly respectful of the environment. Prior to taking over the reins of the family vineyards a few years ago, Christophe honed his winemaking skills both abroad and in France’s Sancerre region.

The estate’s 47 hectares, separated into 120 plots, are managed to protect the microbial life of the soil, helping Christophe to pursue the endless quest for impeccable quality.

This wonderful Muscadet can stand its ground against the other great white wines of the Loire Valley. Superb balance and taste with lots of aging potential.

Gadais Muscadet de Sèvre & Maine Sur Lie Vielles Vignes · Pairing

This medium bodied yet opulent wine has remarkable depth. An extended aging period on fine lees gives it a pleasant, lingering creaminess. This Muscadet pairs well with flavourful and rich seafood dishes as well as with roasted game birds and Asian inspired cuisine.

Appeals to our Enthusiast and Classic Connoisseur.
