THE DOMAIN

presentation_domaine

Domaine BONNET-HUTEAU is located in the heart of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, 20 minutes from Nantes and 10 km from Clisson, a small town with an Italianate charm along the river Sèvre Nantaise.

This domain owns a medieval house which was the origin of the town La Chapelle-Heulin and has been producing Muscadet for over 150 years.

The BONNET HUTEAU family runs their vineyard in order to develop the whole range of flavours of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Haute Expression. Rémi and Jean-Jacques Bonnet have been practising viticulture respectful of the soil and nature, handpicked and with limited yields for over 12 years.

THE VINE IS WHERE IT ALL STARTS ...

The entire domain is cultivated according to the organic farming method ‘Agriculture Biologique’ using no synthetic chemicals.

We officially started working our 40 hectares of vines using a biodynamic approach in 2010, which allowed us to produce pure, natural and living wines fully expressing the minerality of our soils ("Biodyvin" Certification ongoing).

Our viticulture practices:
. Organic fertilization
. Respect for the life of the soil (hoeing and de-hearthing)
. Phytosanitary control respectful of the auxiliary fauna and environment
. Active ingredients approved by Ecocert, respect for yeast flora
. 3 wire trellising for a better breathability of bunches of grapes.
. Application of biodynamic preparations (compost dung MT (Maria Thun), horn manure (500), horn silica (501) ...)
. Preparation of herbal teas, decoctions of plants (nettle, horsetail ...) to help the defence and growth of the vine
. Respect for the rhythms of the lunar calendar (days, leaves, flowers and fruit ...)
. Limitation of yields to 45 hl / ha to concentrate the aromas
. Selective hand picking

THE NATURAL EXPRESSION OF A TERROIR

Our property stretches over 3 localities with different mineral terroirs expressing the balance of our wines. Each batch of grape harvest is identified and isolated by its terroir and vinified separately. Therefore, we can offer different styles of Muscadet according to their origin.

ANCIENT LAND

In the centre of the appellation of Muscadet Sèvre et Maine, on the site of a medieval house which was the origin of the town La Chapelle-Heulin, the castle of Tarcière is one of the oldest walled plots planted with vines in the town.
