Pierre Luneau and Monique Apin set up the Domaine Luneau-Papin in 1993. Their son, Pierre Marie (who is the eighth generation of the family to be a vigneron) joined them in the family venture in 2005. Pierre and Monique were both born into prominent local wine-producing families; Pierre’s family, the Luneau family, in Le Landreau since 1680), and Monique’s family, the Papin family, in La Chapelle-Heulin since 1660). The classic characteristics of Folle Blanche are its freshness on the palate and its salty, iodine-tinged character. A touch of prickliness from the lees and a crisp lemony finish.
