Product Description

Fred Niger is building on the foundation laid by Guy Bossard at Domaine de L’Ecu while stridently adhering to the organic and biodynamic practices Guy has used in the vines since the 1970’s. In addition to the single vineyard Muscadets Gneiss, Orthogneiss and Granite, which have arguably lifted the reputation of the appellation worldwide, Fred is introducing single varietal bottlings that are reshaping the face of the domaine. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Melon fermented in Amphora and without added sulfites introduce a whole new world of possibilities for producers in the area, just as Guy’s single vineyard bottlings did decades ago.
