Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Domaine de l'Ecu Orthogneiss is a biodynamic white wine made on lees by Domaine de l'Ecu in the Loire Valley, in the AOC Muscadet Sèvre et Maine with the Melon de Bourgogne variety.
 
The fifth generation cultivates the 25 hectares of family vineyards in the Loire Valley. Guy Bossard is a pioneer of organic (since 1975) and biodynamic (since 1998) viticulture in the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine area, near Nantes (France). His wines, made under the Domaine de l'Ecu brand, are high quality productions that perfectly express the terroir they come from.
 
Domaine de l'Ecu Orthogneiss comes from strains with an average age of 45 to 55 years old that are planted in orthogneiss soils. The vineyards have had no chemical products used on them since 1975, and with Demeter certification, they are cultivated according to biodynamic principles. The harvest is carried out completely manually. 
 
The Domaine de l'Ecu Orthogneiss grapes move through the winery by gravity, without the use of a pump. They are then gently pressed using a pneumatic press and, without racking the must, spontaneous fermentation begins in concrete tanks with native yeasts. The wine is not filtered and it spends a few months in these underground concrete vats. 
 
Domaine de l'Ecu Orthogneiss is a biodynamic white wine that reflects the deep soul of Muscadet. Rich minerality and delicious density.
