About Producer Nerdy stuff Serving

Domaine de Montbrillais, located in the Loire Valley, is a charming, small-scale winery that has been family-owned and operated for three generations. Run by Guillaume and Damien Hupon, this estate spans just six hectares, focusing on low-yield, high-quality plots that produce exceptional wines. Known for its traditional winemaking techniques and attention to detail, Domaine de Montbrillais offers a rich, aromatic profile with each bottle, highlighting the unique terroir of the Saumur region​.

Vineyard

The grapes come from a selection of very high quality plots (6 ha), with low yields (5 to 6 small bunches per vine) and a very regulated vigour. A high level of ripeness on golden bunches of grapes results in a wine with a beautiful textural richness and aromatic palette. The plots are located on the slopes of the Berrie limestone hillock, on very shallow tufa soil, with a south-western exposure. The Berrie hillock has been renowned for generations for the quality of the white Saumur wines produced there.

Fermentation

Gentle pressing and light settling to preserve the aromatic potential. Traditional vinification with temperature control (17 to 19°C).

Maturation

Aged on fine lees with regular batonnage (8 months), bottled, then stored in our cellars at a depth of 25 m, where the wine continues to age protected from light and temperature variations.
