La Placelière is a superb vineyard protected by the long, high wall that surrounds the property. On its very nice granite soil, we grow the Melon grape, which is the unique variety of the Muscadet Sèvre et Maine appellation. This dry white wine is fresh with a mineral character and notes of white fruits, citrus and baking bread.
