Wine of Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine appellation
The Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine appellation spans 23 communes to the southeast of Nantes and is named after two rivers that run through the vineyard area: the Petite Maine and Sèvre Nantaise. The Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine vineyards cover more than 9,000 hectares and express themselves on soils with a very varied structure of igneous and metamorphic rock from the Massif Armoricain, mainly comprising gneiss, mica schists, and smaller amounts of greenstone and granite. The entire vineyard area benefits from a temperate oceanic climate with even rainfall throughout the year. There are slight differences in the climate from one end of the wine region to the other. These are caused by the varying distances from the coast, the Loire and other bodies or water. Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine wines obtained its AOC by decree in 1936. 

Annual production is 418,000 hectolitres. The appellation's grape is the Melon de Bourgogne, also known as the Muscadet. The crystalline rock of the southeast of Nantes endows the wines with greater finesse than the areas of sedimentary rock. This is one of the earliest-ripening appellation grape varieties in France. Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine wines are often well-structured with good cellar-ageing ability depending on the terroir. Notable wines from the appellation's many producers are those from Domaine Pierre Luneau Papin, Domaine Brégéon, Domaine Joseph Landron, Domaine de l'Ecu and Domaine de la Pépière. 

Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine wine can also use the "Sur Lie" descriptor: early last century, the Nantes wine producers used to save the best barrel of the harvest to celebrate important family events. Stored without racking, this "wedding barrel" gave the wine a particular character. It was fresher on the palate and its bouquet, more complete… Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine "Sur Lie" was born.
