Bottling vintage 2010

The bottling of Muscadet S&M sur lie and Vins de pays vintage 2010 has just started, as well as Cuvées M 2009, Cru Chateau Thébaud Aulnaye 2007, Magnolia de Nantes 2010.

The 2010 vintage is one of the best of the decade in the Nantes vineyards, at the end of Loire Valley because of the optimal weather. This vintage was characterized by low rainfall and sunshine above average, as was 2009, but even at a higher level. Temperatures remained relatively cool unlike 2003 for instance, which allowed us to obtain an advanced maturity by keeping the acidity and thus the freshness in the wines. The wines from the Nantes region are compared with those of the 2005 vintage. They are expressive, rich, very well-balanced. To conclude, vintages such as 2009, 2010 or 2005 are a great opportunity for our vineyards and wines today and in the future…
