2009 Muscadet: what a difference a year makes!

2009 Muscadet juice@Domaine Luneau-Papin

After the very small 2008 vintage, due to frost on 7th April 2008, the producers of Muscadet are delighted to have a normal harvest of generally high quality due to the exceptional weather in August and September.

Pierre Luneau unable to contain his delight with the 2009 vintage!

This year the vats are full, while last year they were far from full.
