This is a fairly small, atypical co-op of 10 members, all from Le Pallet in the heart of Muscadet. All 10 members have their own properties, they bottle and sell a part of their production themselves and another part goes to the co-op for use in a larger appellation “blend.” The President is one of the owners and so is the winemaker. The facilities are at one member’s winery. “Le Pallet” the vineyard is one of the Crus of Muscadet, there are seven crus in all, and is considered by many as the best. The soil is interesting, the northwest part of the town consists of light colored rocks (Roches Blanches) mixed with sand and the southwest area is dark colored (Roches Noires) and sand. Their “Jubilation” bottling referenced above represents a new movement in the appellation towards intense, bottle-aged Muscadet with better selection, later harvesting, and longer aging on the lees. These wines are very different, more serious, fuller and have real aging potential. For some odd reason wines in this category cannot be called “sur lie” although they stay much longer on them.
