Domaine Des Raillères
Atlantic Breeze - Domaine des Raillères
Claude Michel Pichon is the sixth generation to run the Domaine des Railléres vineyard in the small town of Vallet in the heart of the Nantes region. He first worked for twelve years as a winemaker and wine buyer for large wineries in France, before taking over the management of Domaine Des Raillères in 2006, succeeding his father Raymond.
Claude Michel knows the potential of his vineyards and the quality of the Muscadet of his homeland and so he expanded the winery with a lot of energy and built a new cellar to win Muscadet Sur Lie according to his ideas. In particular, the lack of young people in the many farms in the neighbourhood enabled him to purchase vineyards around Vallet and double his current 80 hectares of vineyards. The limestone and loess sedimentary soils of the region are rather sparse and the climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean 60 km away. This results in a suitable terroir with mild and humid winters hot, but not too dry summers.
