Muscadet is hardly a secret. With its intense minerality and slender vivacity, the wines are summer-time favorites for real terroir expression at value prices. Bregeon's Muscadet is a gorgeous example of why: delicious wine for a bargain. But Muscadet has another, still (somewhat) secret side: the 7 "Crus Communeaux," Muscadet subregions officially recognized only in 2011. Like Beaujolais' Crus, Muscadet's Crus Communeaux are small regions with terroirs both exceptional and distinct. Their recognition has been a great way to help wine lovers discover what Muscadet can be when it comes from the very best sites. The neatest part? These Crus are strongly correlated to soil type. Clisson, for instance, abounds in granite, while Goulaine is home to schist. Gorges is dominated by gabbro, a very old volcanic rock that gives a focused, explosive minerality and racy acidity. Muscadet turned up to 11! Terroir is a crucial component of great wine, but so is great viticulture and great winemaking. Some of the greatest Muscadets we’ve ever tried have come from Gorges specialist and long-time Kermit-Lynch import Domaine Michel Bregeon. Bregeon has 65+ year-old vines, which mean low yields (30hl/ha) of concentrated, powerful fruit, which they farm organically. On top of that, they age their wines in underground, glass-lined tanks for an exceptionally long time.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Due for late 2016 bottling, this inaugural Brégeon Clisson underwent malolactic transformation but is none the worse for that. Subtly bittersweet floral aromas capture the attention, along with intimations of lime and ripe pear that translate into tangy, juicy presence on a silken, expansive palate. Alkalinity, crystalline stoniness and salinity serve for intrigue and milk the salivary glands in an at once soothingly and refreshingly sustained finish. As Brégeon pointed out with a wry smile, this weighs in at nearly 13 percent alcohol, almost a full degree above the corresponding Gorges, but I can’t say that I would have noticed." -Vinous
