Domaine du Petit Métris is a sixth-generation winery in Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné near Angers. The domaine’s oldest vineyard dates back to 1905 although the business has been producing wine since 1742 and acquired its first plot of land in 1830. Today, the domaine produces wines from 30 hectares of vineyards across several appellations including Crémant de Loire, rosés and reds from Anjou and Anjou Villages, through to haute de gamme appellations Savennières, Coteaux du Layon and Quarts de Chaume. Pascal and Hervé Renou are the current generation of owners. With Pascal mainly in the vineyards and Hervé in the cellar, the brothers have sustained the domaine’s excellent reputation in France. Despite their modesty, Paul and Hervé are nonetheless gaining fame for their competence in the vineyard and the cellar and above all, the consistent quality of their wines. Domaine du Petit Métris favours physical intervention in the vineyard over reliance on chemical applications.

An amazing array of aromas; orange zest, acacia, pine and beeswax. A touch of salt, perhaps. An aromatic voyage! Rich, honeyed dessert wine with stunning acidity and cleanness on the finish.
