Nicknamed the “Pope of Muscadet”, Guy Bossard is one of the pioneering forces of organic and biodynamic viticulture in the Loire. Domaine de L’Ecu has been in Guy’s family for five generations, and when he took the reins in the early 70’s, he applied for organic certification right away, converting to biodynamics in the 90’s. He has since been succeeded by Fred Niger, who shares Bossard’s passion for biodynamics. At L’Ecu, muscadet is not simply a crisp white to enjoy with oysters; it is a terroir-driven wine with cellaring capacity to rival Chablis or Burgundy, though at a fraction of the price.
