20 kilometres from Nantes, in the south of the Loire, the Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin vineyard covers 45 hectares of vines on the sunny slopes of the Sèvre and Maine. Since the middle of the 17th century, Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin has been planted with the Melon grape variety from Burgundy, called "Muscadet". This Muscadet has found its favourite land, made up of micaschist rocks, schists, serpentinite, granite and gneiss with two micas. Due to its exceptional location, Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin offers 11 identity wines in Muscadet Sèvre & Maine from the villages of the Landreau. La Chapelle-Heulin, Vallet and Loroux-Bottereau. A process to promote the Muscadet Crus has been underway since 2001. The "Excelsior" vintage highlights a great terroir of micaschists planted in 1936 and will soon be topped with the appellation Cru Communal "Goulaine". The estate jealously keeps treasures in a cellar arranged in constant temperature and humidity of the great vintages of the last forty years.

We are the ninth generation of winegrowers. Respectful of the experience brought by previous generations, from 2 Papin and Luneau families, we perpetuate, accompanied by the parents of Pierre-Marie, Pierre and Monique, the family tradition by breeding a Muscadet de Terroir which makes the reputation of the Domaine Pierre Luneau-Papin. Each Clos is hand-picked, vinified and matured separately, respecting the authenticity of the characteristics of each terroir. Since 2009, soil cultivation has been resumed and extended year after year to the entire parcel of the property. We are now moving forward on the path to offer you, in a In the very near future, the entire estate will be converted to organic farming. Stones after rocks, we build together Pierre, Monique, Pierre-Marie & Marie Luneau, with passion, wisdom, innovation, respect for each other, confidence, prudence, questioning and love. In the palm of our hands!
"The vine is the wine, the vine is the wine." This sentence often comes back as a joke between my husband, Pierre-Marie and myself, so vast is this universe and feeds us every day. A bottomless well that takes us and our bottles across borders and oceans. A magical world of wine that offers us the opportunity to meet all cultures and share moments of life with many of our consumers.
The life of young winegrowers is exciting! We have a great chance to realize our dreams, with our feet in the ground and our heads in the stars. Our wines are found on tables in Japan, England, Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Belgium, Canada, the United States... And wines from all over the world are on familiar terms. What is magical in wine is this mix of talents, generations and cultures that is united at one moment by a tasting. Thank you to our ambassadors around the world for trusting us. Thank you to the organizers of fairs, websites and tastings for thinking of us. Thank you to the international press for their walks in our vineyards. They love our vines so much that we tickle them in all seasons!
