Jean-Jacques, Rémi Bonnet and Vincent Pineau, all three passionate winegrowers, operate Domaine Bonnet-Huteau, an estate that has been in the family for more than 150 years. It’s found in the centre of the Sèvre et Maine appellation, a beautiful region not far from Nantes on the banks of the Sèvre Nantaise.
As biodynamic winemakers, they strive to develop the full range of flavours of high-expression Muscadet and the minerality of each terroir. Some of their wines are even made in amphorae, large terracotta eggs used to allow the wines to breathe naturally; combined with ageing on the lees, the Domaine’s wines are able to have low levels of sulfites added. With respect for their natural environment and a commitment to organic and biodynamic processes, the Domaine produces some truly unique low-intervention wines.

$60.00 SGD– Sold Out
The fruit of rigorous work in the vineyard and 24 months aging on the lees, this is a delicious wine that drinks beautifully now but will age well too. A hint of honey in the fragrance, a cool climate freshness and an aromatic kick. The palate is crisp, deep and mineral. Made for white meats, partcularly with some spice. This Cru Goulaine is one of the seven new "Communal" appellations officially recognized in Muscadet.
