The Maverick of Muscadet Jérôme Bretaudeau, works from a veritable science experiment of a winery, in the industrial sector of Clisson. Revolutionising the classic Melon de Bourgogne that we expect from Muscadet, and experimenting with varieties not permitted in the appellation, such as Chardonnay and Merlot.
Gaia is arguably Jérôme's flagship wine, certainly in terms of style. It's known for its crunchy apple and flinty overtones, which have an almost smoke like nuttiness. It's aged on lees for at least twenty four months in concrete eggs. If you're a lover of old style Clare Valley Riesling, we think this will be right up your alley.
