Domaine de la Combe

France

Domaine de la Combe is the project of Pierre-Henri Gadais, the fifth generation of a family of growers in the Muscadet region between the rivers Sèvre and Maine. Prior to returning to the family winery, Pierre-Henri spent four years working in wineries around the globe to expand his outlook. He now works with his father Christophe at Gadais Père et Fils and in addition, he manages the vineyards and winery of Domaine de la Combe. The family purchased the 9 hectares of vineyards along with the wine cellar in 2009. Upon returning in 2016, Pierre-Henri took control, starting the conversion to organic viticulture with a special emphasis on the biodiversity of the vineyard. Like his father, Pierre-Henri only grows Melon vines in his vineyard, the unique grape variety that makes up the characteristics of the wines of the western Loire Valley.

The wines show Pierre- Henri’s passion for his land and this special grape, complemented by a well-rounded international experience and fresh outlook.

The resulting richness and complexity are immediately noticeable in its aromas. On the palate, the Réserve Personelle is refreshing, crisp and light with a pleasant acidity. The finish long and complex.

Domaine de la Combe Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur lie Réserve Personelle · Pairing

A great aperitif that is also a pleasant combination with raw oysters, mussels in a white wine sauce, salads, sushi and slightly spicy preparations. Also a nice match to noble fish dishes in a cream sauce.
