Melon de Bourgogne as a terroir ambassador
The Domaine Luneau-Papin is one of the great innovators in the Nantais, where the Muscadet vineyards are found. It was born in the 1990s through a love story - that between Pierre Luneau and Marie Papin.
Pierre took over the vineyard in the commune of Le Landreau from his parents, while Monique took over the running of the family vineyard in Chapelle-Heulin from her mother Jeannette and father Auguste Papin.
At that time, the two belonged to the small movement that recognised the potential of the Melon de Bourgogne grape variety as a terroir translator early on, because it makes extremely sensitive demands on climate and winemakers and thus expresses its origin in an unadulterated way.
The wines exemplify how texturally and structurally strong the grape variety can be and what a wealth of expressive possibilities it possesses.
