Louis Métaireau — along with his band of vignerons d’art, as his like-minded group of producers were known — was instrumental in restoring the reputation of the Muscadet appellation in the middle of the 20th century. It was he who first began leaving his wines sur lie (on their fine lees) through the winter. Since taking over for her father, Marie-Luce Métaireau and her husband, Jean-François Guilbaud, have illustrated their deep love of the land by reclaiming the vineyards of the vignerons d’art. This is classic and affordable Muscadet of the sort that would be offered in a traditional Paris bistro with a shellfish platter. Add a fresh salad of some sort, a baguette and a little romance, and life is complete ;>).
