Domaine de `Ecu

The Domaine de l'Ecu has been in the family for five generations. In 1975 the domaine produced biological wine exclusively. In 1992 M. Guy Bossard, the owner, started producing wine biodynamically (according to the phases of the moon) and from 1996 the whole wine production on this estate has been made this way, certified by the French controle body DEMETER.

They still use mules and a hand plough to work the rows, and natural manure as fertiliser. The grapes are hand picked. All their natural wines are bottled ''Sur Lie'' (straight off the lees) to capture freshness and fruit.

The domaine has 21 hectares under vines made up of Melon de Bourgogne for the Muscadet de Sevre et Maine, 2 hectares of Folle Blanche for the Gros Plant, 2 hectares of Cabernet for the Vin de Pays Rouge and one hectare of Chardonnay for their bottle fermented sparkling wine.

Domaine de l'Ecu is widely regarded as the best wine estate in Muscadet and has had very many top awards and accolades as proof.
