Since 1900, we have been cultivating our vines and producing our wines as independant winegrowers.
Our vineyard is established in Château-Thébaud and spreads over 16 hectares. Our vines are over 50 years old, cultivated on 5 terroirs. We are now using integrated viticulture. The grape varieties are:
- Melon de Bourgogne
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Cabernet Franc
- Folle Blanche
Our vines are grown on the Armorican massif, in 5 different terroirs. Each plot soil and subsoil is composed on a variety of Granodiorite, Gneiss, Gabbro Amphibolite, Sandstone, Schist, Mica Schist, “Granit de Clisson”, “Granite de Château-Thébaud”.
This variety of soil and subsoils allows our wines to express very distinctive aromatic profiles.
Jardin d’Edouard Estate produces a broad range of white, red and rosé wines as well as sparkling wines. We offer 15 various cuvées to your greatest delight!
We master the « on lees » maturing method to give a unique style to Muscadets. The wines are matured on their lees from 7 to 72 months in glass coated underground tanks.
Muscadets are segmented in 3 families depending on the maturation duration and the terroirs :
- Refreshing, up to 14 months: crispy, fresh,mineral.
- Matured 15 to 24 months: Richness, fruitiness, balanced freshness-roundness.
- Premium, 24 to 72 months: Powerful, full bodied, mineral finish.
Each wine reveals an unique personality, originating from a specific terroir, vintage and maturing process.
We export our wines in various countries and are constantly looking for new opportunities.
We attend national and international fairs on a regular basis to understand the market and to share our wines.
