Domaine Luneau-Papin


Domaine Luneau-Papin is located 20 km south of the Loire River, 20 km from the city of Nantes, and is a prestigious estate with a history dating back to the 17th century. The previous generation, Pierre Luneau, has long been one of the producers who have taught the ageing potential of Muscadet. From fresh, crisp Muscadets to long-aging Muscadets that finally reach their prime after aging, he has made wines that bring out the best of each terroir and its potential. Today, under the leadership of Pierre-Marie Luneau, the ninth generation of the family, the focus is on expressing the differences between the terroirs more clearly.

It currently owns vineyards in four villages and has been growing organically since 2013. In addition, some vineyards have introduced biodynamic practices in their cultivation. In vinification, they use the region's traditional underground tanks. The sur lie method is used, whereby the wine is left to age on its lees after fermentation is complete, thus obtaining freshness and a rich body. Only grapes with exceptional minerality and rich acidity allow for long-term aging. Papin's wines are on the list of the most prestigious restaurants in the Loire region and in Paris.
