General Information: We destemmed the grapes. Maceration of about 7 days, start of alcoholic fermentation in the tank with the grapes. Malolactic fermentation in tank. Located in the earth of the Appellation Muscadet Côtes de Grandlieu, the Domain du Haut Bourg was built by four generations of wine makers. The first vine was planted in 1945 and today the surface of the vineyard reaches 40 hectares. The vineyard is entirely located in the town of Bouaye. The soil mainly contains micaschiste, granit and sand. It gives good balance and richness to our wines. The lac de Grandlieu (south), the Loire river (north) and the low altitude (from 15 to 25 meters) create a microclimat characterized by low temperature differences between day and night. This phenomenon allows an early harvest. The wines from Nicolas Choblet are nothing short of being truly great wines. A friend introduced us to the wines of Nicolas in July 2006. Once tasting some of the wines we have reserved the whole production. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough money to buy the vineyard.
