“This is one of the most exciting wineries we have come across recently in the Loire. Jérémie Mourat, based in Mareuil-sur-Lay in the heart of Fiefs Vendéens between Laroche sur Yon and La Rochelle, is a super talented winemaker who is constantly pushing boundaries, whether it’s a ‘nest’ of egg vats worthy of Sigourney Weaver or his brand new and organic range ‘Le Moulin Blanc’ which includes a charming Pinot Noir and a very interesting Blanc de Noirs made from 100% Pinot Noir. Rigorous selection at sorting time, after harvest, ensures only the best fruit makes it into the wines.

The O.V.N.I range (Objet viticole non identifié) are punchy ‘wow’ wines selected from the Vendée region, where volcanic soils, combined with the cooling influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean, bring out the natural vivacity of Chenin Blanc and help to hone a terrific Sauvignon Blanc dominated blend. The Collection white in its distinctive short, stumpy bottle is made from equal parts Chardonnay & Chenin and offers outstanding value.
