About Nicolas Arnou Moustache

Nicolas Arnou Moustache is a strawberry explosion of pure fruit, bright and bouncy, with resilient acidity and enormous energy. This is a wine that is best enjoyed in large sips and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Seven days of semi-carbonic maceration on whole bunches without sulfur, slow pressing in an old vertical press, and storage in a fiberglass tank. Unfiltered and bottled by gravity.

About Nicolas Arnou

Nicolas decided to be a winemaker after a start outside the world of wines. He chose to rediscover his roots, re-connect with the environment, and jump head first into what was and is his passion. He leads a life among the vines and operates with the utmost respect for nature and for the fruit. Through a Jurassian formation with the likes of Pierre Overnoy & Manu Houillon, Nicolas became a devotee to the art of natural winemaking; going free of sulfur only makes sense with the ¨less is more attitude¨. In the Layon Valley, near to his family, was where he decided to break ground with the purchase of a cellar and the attached clos. A descendant of farmers of the region, it is a land understood and fortunately, this is reflected in the wines.

The domain itself is a 10h enclosure which is part of the domain de Raimbaudières where Nicolas grows Chenin Blanc, Grolleau, and Cabernet Franc. The aspect or gravity cellar even further limits the need for machine assistance in all stages of the winemaking process. The vinification; is carried out as simply as possible, the intention is the preservation of the natural juice, nothing is added & nothing is taken away. No oenological entrants are used, the wines aren’t filtered and pumps are seldom used, there is a spirit of gravity that runs through the entire operation.

They are wines that are unmasked, excitingly pure with an edge of rusticity. The wines are permitted to express themselves with all of their life and nuance.
