Vinet family vineyards are found within two of ten Muscadet Crus in the heart of the Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine appellation, La Haye-Fouassière and Château-Thébaud. These remarkable plots are the source fo MALECO and CLOS DE LA HOUSSAIE.
AT A GLANCE
The grape here, Melon de Bourgogne, is used to make energetic wines that gain weight and texture through extended lees contact. The Vinet family makes two distinctively different wines from the same grape grown on different soils throughout these two communes. They are marked by extended lees contact of two years before bottling.
