The unknown Marais de Goulaine

Looking across the Marais towards the city of Nantes

A report in Presse Ocean here on the unknown Marais de Goulaine, the area of marshland on the south side of the Loire to the east of Nantes. The Château de Goulaine, famous for its butterfly collection and its Muscadet, is on the western edge of the Marais.

'Le marais de Goulaine reste encore méconnu. Le site vaut pourtant le détour. Plongée au coeur du poumon vert.'

I remember visiting Chateau de Goulaine on a WSET trip many years ago. My vague memories are fairly positive (beautiful Chateau, eccentric owner, decent wines); have you tried their wines recently?

Not recently Michael. I had the same experience some 20 years ago.
