"The second wine of Grand Mouton, this is made from 30-year-old vines from an extensive vineyard on the slopes above the Maine River, the soils mainly gneiss with mica, garnet and amphibolite. It's an ornate Loire pleasure in 2011: golden scents of honey, luscious flavors of white peach, pithy with extract and delicious detail. Ready to drink now, this would be delicious with any fresh catch from the sea." (04/14)


"Petit Mouton comes from the Grand Mouton vineyard and is made from thirty to fifty year old vines. The wine is pure mineral and oyster shell. It is laser like in its focus. Plus it has the musky character that is typical of old vines grown on siliceous rock. While most whites are decanted off the lees as soon as fermentation is complete in the fall, Metaireau cools their wines in concrete vats to 5 degrees C to precipitate the lees to the bottom of the vat. The wines then stay on the lees throughout the winter, and each vintage is bottled without first being racked, which preserves a small amount of carbon dioxide in the wine. The longer the wine stays in contact with the lees, the richer its depth and flavor." - Importer

"In 1972, the group purchased Domaine du Grand Mouton, a massive vineyard which, at 27 ha, dwarfed Metaireau's own. The origin of the name "Mouton" does refer to the animal (sheep), but rather to "mothon," ancient French for the word "mound," and was chosen for the elevated position of the vineyard. Louis Metaireau's daughter, Marie-Luce, joined him at the Domaine in 1982 and his interests are now overseen by his daughter and her husband, Jean-Francois Guilbaud. He also comes from a wine-growing family in the same area, on the other side of the river. In 1988, they began repurchasing Grand Mouton from the group, piece by piece. Their goal has been to buy back properties which once belonged to both of their families, and they are making significant headway. All told, they have 30 hectares of vines planted between Sevre and Maine." - Importer
