Gilbert Chon

We waited a very long time until importing our first Muscadet, but now believe that we have found a winner. The Chon brothers practice organic viticulture in a patchwork of crus that show the subtle but clear distinctions of terroir that exist in this popular but little-understood area. They make impeccably clean, vividly expressive wines at reasonable prices, and have been hailed by David Schildknecht as offering exceptional quality and value.

Available Wines

Chon 2012 ‘Clos de la Chapelle’ Muscadet-sur-lie, Vieilles Vignes

A single-vineyard wine of unusual authority and texture, but unmistakable origin, from schist-grown vines over 60 years old. A Muscadet for those who appreciate fruit as well as the authentic saline minerality of the genre.  ~WineWise

Little did we know that les frères Chon also make an unspeakably delicious and soft Cabernet Franc that offers all the uncomplicated charm of which this grape is capable. And what a bargain! This has understandably developed a following.
