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.

Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie Réserve Personelle · Profile

A great representative of a well-structured, refreshing Muscadet Sur Lie – wonderful flavours of green apple, pear, and a touch of citrus balanced by a crisp acidity that leads into a surprisingly complex, long finish.

Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie Réserve Personelle · Pairing

The close proximity of the vineyards to the Atlantic ocean and fruity character of the wine make it a great match with raw and baked oysters, mussels, and clams. Also a nice choice with river and lake fish, grilled or poached in a cream sauce. Well chilled it is a perfect aperitif.
