When Franҫois first put me in touch with this winery, I was delighted. The wine was great and the price was great and Seattle, located on the coast with a culture of seafood lovers, is a match made in heaven for good Muscadet. This wine was on our first container along with another excellent Muscadet (Chateau du Hallay, where sadly, the estate was recently sold, so we won’t have more of this wine) and ordered several pallets of each. I remember Francois looking at me a little concerned and saying, “That’s a little too much Muscadet, don’t you think?” I knew it wasn’t and it wasn’t. Seattle is the perfect place for this wine and it does very well here.
More on the winery:
Chateau de la Bigotière Located in the heart of the Maison-sur-Sevre region of the Loire Valley, Chateau de la Bigotiere is made up of 54 hectares of land. Cultivated by the same family for three generations; the wine is noticeably different from many others thanks to the gneiss soil the vines grow out of on East facing slopes. Floral nose, fruity in mouth feel, and distinctive sur Maine characteristics prove time and time again that this is a fabulous wine for all to enjoy.
