Features

 

Propriété familiale de 29 hectares, le domaine est situé à l’ouest du Val de Loire, en AOP Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu. Riches de l’influence combinée de la façade atlantique, de la Loire et du lac de Grandlieu, ses terroirs offrent des vins océaniques, frais et iodés. Toutes les vignes sont conduites en agriculture biologique depuis 2016.

La proximité de la côte atlantique, la richesse du Lac de Grandlieu (reconnu plus grand lac naturel de plaine en France), et la situation à l’extrême ouest du Val de Loire confèrent au Domaine Eric Chevalier un climat privilégié. Entre douceur du lac et salinité de la façade océanique, les vins sont marqués « de là où ils sont nés ».

Cépage 100 % Melon de Bourgogne

Sols Roche mère métamorphique (amphibolites, éclogites) avec accumulation de quartz roulés et silex.

Age des vignes 40 ans

Méthode de vinification Pressurage lent – fermentations spontanées – élevage sur lies totales jusqu’à la mise bouteille (début avril)

Dégustation : la robe est jaune paille, brillante. Le nez est fin et mûr, sur la pomme chaude, la fleur de tilleul et une pincée d'épices. La bouche est  vive, tendue, étirée par une fine acidité traçante renforcée par un filet de gaz carbonique, tout en offrant une matière ronde, souple, fraîche, à l'aromatique sobre et mûre – toujours la pomme chaude complétée par des notes caillouteuses / salines. La finale prolonge la dynamique de la bouche en lui ajoutant plus de niaque et de fraîcheur, sur l'écorce et la pulpe de citron, et une persistance sur des notes salines et épicées.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
