Since the 17th Century Domaine Luneau-Papin has cultivated its vines in the heart of the Muscadet Sèvre & Maine appellation with love and humour through all seasons and across generations.
The history of Domaine Luneau-Papin is a story of the union of two Muscadet Sèvre & Maine families united by love, passing on the domaine from one generation to the next with a genuine passion for the land and the vine.
The domaine’s great wines have been perfected over several decades. At Luneau-Papin their skills, knowledge and their wonderful vineyards are passed on from generation to generation. Today’s work will shape the vintages of tomorrow – each will leave their mark.
In the 2000s the Domaine Luneau-Papin started to convert firstly to organic viticulture and then to biodynamics. This process has been marked by memorable moments such as stopping the use of all systemic products, achieving the certification by Ecocert of all of the wines and being certified by Demeter and Biodyvin.
Garance is the newly renamed and rebranded ‘Le Verger’ and has been aged on lees which gives the wine lots of texture and a touch of smoke. Sharp minerality and brisk acidity with flavours of lemon peel, apricot and pear
