About the Wine
Critic Reviews
92 points, Loire Valley Wines
“Aromas are balanced between minerals and white fruits. Almost creamy in the mouth with a hint of effervescence, the citrus, limestone, and chalky mineral notes fill the palate. Incredibly fresh from beginning to end, this wine is easy to love.”

90 points, James Suckling
“Pretty nose of jasmine, honeysuckle, peaches and fresh pears. Crushed shells, too. Light-to medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a fresh, fruity palate. Flavorful, textured finish. Drink now.”

“From old vines planted on schist soils, this wine is distinctly mineral. Its acidity and crisp lemon flavors are balanced by a ripe green apple freshness. The wine is textured and will benefit from further aging. Drink from 2023. Roger Voss”

"Screw cap. Supple and medium bodied, this is an intensely flavored Muscadet (pear, apple, lime, honey, hops), with good balance, and a long, crisp finish. Terrific value; can develop further. From 30 to 60 year old vines. Aged 10 months on the lees. 12% [2023-2024] Vineyard Brands, Birmingham, AL 205.980.8802"

About The Winery
Built by the noble Loré de la Ragotière family in the 14th century, Château de la Ragotière was purchased in 1979 by brothers Bernard, Francois, and Michel Couillaud. After acquiring the property, the brothers discovered an old cellar in the chapel housing vintages dating back to 1947. The thirty hectare (over 74 acres) estate is home to schist and micaschist soils that produce late-maturing and well-structured wines, particularly good for keeping. Today, the new generation - Amélie, daughter of Bernard, and her husband, Vincent Dugué - lead the estate.
